FOUR MOUNTAINS WITH GROOMED TRAILS

SIcamous and the Eagle valley hosts some of the greatest alpine snomobiling in western canada. You’ll find deep powder, steep terrain, powder filled bowls, endless meadows and spectacular views of Shuswap and Mara Lakes. Sledders venturing to the Sicamous area enjoy quick and easy access to four outstanding mountains offering a large assortment of sledding terrain. The trailheads leading to Queest and Owlhead are conveniently located within the community, while Eagle Pass and Blue Lake trailheads are within 20 minutes of Sicamous. These four snowmobiling areas are accessed by forest service roads that are carefully groomed and well-marked. The trails to riding areas are approximately 25kms and are groomed on a regular schedule. After the cabins, the snowmobiling areas are uncontrolled and unmarked. The groomed trails and snow-filled mountain meadows at Blue Lake, Owlhead and Queest areas will cater to both families and the novice sledders. For the more experienced riders, all four of these mountains offer an unlimited variety of challenging, technical and extreme riding with steep terrain, intermediate chutes and deep

powder. The sledsicamous.com website explains more about the variety of snowmobiling at each area and offers tips for deciding on the area best suited to your sledding skills. Daily trail user fees are kept to a minimal $25 fee and help to fund the operational costs associated with managing the four areas including the superb grooming program that Sicamous is known for. All four of the snowmobiling areas offer cozy cabins to warm up in, enjoy your lunch and share sledding stories with other riders. These cabins are maintained by the dedicated volunteers of the Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club. A huge amount of work is undertaken each year at the cabins including interior and exterior cabin upkeep, stocking of firewood and general tidy up. If you are interested in helping out with our work bees, contact the Club. Parking lot upgrades have been completed at Eagle Pass and Owlhead staging areas and include bigger turn-around areas with more vehicle and large trailer parking space. Sicamous is a “recreation destination for all four seasons”. Contact us to plan your next adventure; spring, summer, fall and winter. 446 Main Street, Sicamous, BC V0E 2V0 250.836.3313 • visitsicamous.ca @Sicamous Visitor Centre

MOUNTAIN CARIBOU HABITAT

OPERATING PRACTICES Snowmobilers will not ride in areas designated as closed to snowmobiling.

Snowmobilers will make every effort to research an area prior to snowmobiling there, including looking for local maps and other information pertinent to snowmobiling in that location.

If you see caribou, please text location to 250.803.8606

• Snowmobilers will obey all posted signs. • If caribou are encountered, snowmobilers will refrain from approaching. Snowmobilers will stay on their snowmobiles. Photographs will be taken from a distance. • If caribou are encountered on a road or trail, snowmobilers will turn off the engine and remain on their sled. • Snowmobilers will wait until the caribou have moved off of the road or trail before continuing, making every effort to stay as far away from the caribou as safely possible. • If caribou are encountered in a play area, snowmobilers will not approach them. They will shut down their machines to give the animals a chance to move away, then leave the area and refrain from riding within sight of the caribou. • If caribou tracks are observed, snowmobilers will not follow the tracks.

JOINING OUR CLUB

Your membership with the Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club includes an Annual Trail Pass enabling you to access the groomed trails on Blue Lake, Eagle Pass, Owlhead and Queest without paying the daily trail pass fee. Membership fees fund the grooming program, chalet maintenance, trail signage and trail improvements. The EVSC is a member of the British Columbia Snowmobile Federation (BCSF) Your annual membership also includes a membership with the BCSF for assistance in their work towards provincial representation for the snowmobiling industry.

A Little Bit of History

As far back as our records show from 1958, these trails were voluntarily groomed by club members who initially dragged boards behind their snowmobiles to flatten out the moguls. The Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club members groom the trails, maintain the cabins and promote safe, responsible snowmobiling. This exceptional grooming program combined with the natural beauty of the area has won multiple awards in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premiere snowmobiling magazine (SnoRiders) including awards for best snowmobiling area in BC.

VOTED AS the favourite family snowmobiling destination area in BC - for the third year in a row! -SNORIDER MAGAZINE READERS

The sledding season starts about the first of December and ends around mid April. For the most avid sledders, sledding can start in November and continue through to the May Long Weekend. There are even rumours of sledders on the snow covered hills in July! Where else can you sled in the morning, golf in the afternoon and go boating in the evening?! All FOUR sledding areas are accessed by Forest Service Roads (FSRs) that are carefully groomed. All four of our sledding areas offer comfortable cabins for shelter. Sledders can choose from a wide range of terrain to suit any level, with groomed trails and snow-filled meadows for family and novice sledders to challenging steep terrain and deep powder for more experienced riders. Sicamous is one of the most popular places to stay and play in the winter. Come and check us out!

The maps in this guide are for general reference only. These mountain areas can be treacherous at times and weather can change quickly. Please use caution when snowmobiling in the mountains and follow safe snowmobiling practices. Advise family or friends where you plan to ride each day and contact them upon your return. Always come prepared with overnight survival gear. It is recommended that you read the avalanche bulletins at www. avalanche.ca and take avalanche training before you travel into the mountains.
