Can you feel it? Can you feel the cold damp air on your face as you step outside? Can you see the grey clouds hanging low on the horizon, like over-inflated balloons ready to burst? Do you question your vision as the odd white speck flutters downwards disappearing before it hits the ground? Yes, there is change in the air and we call it winter.

While the mid-November gloom might be associated by some with cabin fever, to the snowmobile fan it means the most spectacular sunrise of the year. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines—winter is in the starting gate and it's time to start planning.

As snowmobiling destinations go, not all are created equal. When it comes to planning your next adventure, Algoma is hard to beat.

Why, you ask? I could go on about comfortable accommodations, good food, friendly people, spectacular landscapes and local highlights—but we snowmobilers have simple needs, so I'll give you the top reasons that make Algoma the place to be this season.


Location, location, location. It just so happens that Algoma occupies the most productive corner of the world’s largest freshwater snow producing machine—Lake Superior. With annual snow fall expectations in the 300 to 350 cm (12 -14 foot) range, Algoma is the snowiest location in Ontario.


With 3,200 kilometres (2,000 miles) of groomed trail at your disposal, whether you’re into day tripping or a multi-day tour, Algoma has you covered. Follow a signed official loop or make your own way.
