Snowmobiler racing across winter snow.

Backcountry Snowmobiling in Ontario

ontario family resortsThousands of Ontarians have been quietly singing “let it snow, let it snow, let snow” under their breath for weeks. With autumn officially in the rearview mirror here in Northern Ontario, our focus turns on the highly-anticipated upcoming snowmobile season. We’re eagerly standing on the precipice of yet another exciting winter season here at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort, one of the best Ontario family resorts.

Snowmobilers Basecamp

It’s only a matter of weeks before the area’s best snowmobile trails open, but that cannot happen without a little help from Old Man Winter. Elk Lake Wilderness Resort has quickly become one of the premier snowmobiler basecamps in the entire province. Not only do we provide cozy accommodations, homemade dinners, and relaxing saunas, but our riverfront resort has insider knowledge on the very best backcountry riding locales in Ontario.

Backcountry Riding

The sizable community of snowmobilers here at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort is like a family. Large groups, families included, return to the Montreal River for memorable winter getaways year after year. As we detailed in a previous blog, the area is plump full of meticulously-groomed snowmobile trails, but we also have an adventurous, unmarked “system” of unfrequented backcountry logging roads. We happily provide custom maps that lead guests to incredible Northern Ontario gems like picturesque Canyon Lake, abandoned mines, and peaceful backcountry lakes. You’ll likely never see another group on these back lakes, and they’re the best places to find the freshest powder.
