Winter Activites



Kitimat Snowmobile Club

Every sledder needs to put Kitimat on their bucket list!  The area is known for its legendary snowfall.  Kitimat, which is only 128 metres above sea level, has a high snowfall record.

There are two scenic trails to choose from namely Clague Mountain and Robinson Ridge.  Both of these trails have an overnight cabin, considered by some to be the nicest snowmobile cabins in the province.  Those who use the cabins are asked to leave them as they found them.  The dues collected from club membership assist in the costs of maintaining the cabins and trails.

Overnight cabin reservations can be made at Riverlodge Recreation Centre at 250-632-8970.

Those who enjoy snowshoeing and backcountry skiing will also appreciate the scenic snow covered mountains around Kitimat.  Snowshoeing is a great winter activity for the whole family and is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to exercise or get out and enjoy the snow.  If you enjoy hiking, then you will love exploring the marked trails in winter too and possibly spot some wildlife along the way.  The snowshoe trails are dependent on the amount of snow and there's a route for everyone, from novice to more experienced.
