On the trails in algoma

A place where you feel like you have all the snowmobile trails to yourself



Algoma Country takes in the north shore of Lake Huron right over to Superior where it meets with Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. As a snowmobiling destination, it's just a few hours from anywhere yet a world away from everywhere. Wide, sweeping trails are beautifully groomed and routed to all the services a sledder needs. The granite outcrops of the Canadian Shield and vast white pine forests are sprinkled with deep valleys, lakes and river crossings.

Twisting and turning trails make elevation changes of up to 1,000 feet -- which keeps the ride challenging. Yet, even with all its natural beauty and great trails, the whole area is only lightly used.

On our ride to Elliot Lake, on a sunny Saturday, we passed just a dozen other sleds all day long. We rode over 150 miles and felt like we had all of Algoma to ourselves. Once arrived, it was hard to leave.

Sunshine, fresh snow in the trees, fast groomed trails -- we found it all in Algoma Country.
