Let's Ride BC takes on a new direction for this coming season and is set up to make some exciting changes in the 'business' of BC snowmobiling. Let's Ride BC is a program administered by the British Columbia Snowmobile Federation, and funded by Tourism BC via their industry sector development initiative called 'Experiences BC'.  This is a partnership between the BCSF and Destination BC with the goal to attract snowmobilers to BC, promote snowmobile related businesses and develop tourism based snowmobile activity. Let's Ride BC is a program set up for clubs, businesses and communities that support growth and value the economic impact the snowmobile industry has on BC's winter tourism business.

Another successful year for Snowarama

Resource Road Safety

We have received notice of a few close calls out there between snowmobilers and Logging trucks.  These incidents involved snowmobiles crossing roads without looking or driving on active haul roads without radios.  Please remember that while you are in a hurry to get to the great snow others have a job to do.  We do not want anyone to get hurt.  

Key points:

  • Forestry Roads are used for industrial use as well as recreational use
  • Recreation users need to use extreme caution when using Forestry Roads, especially if they do not have radios
  • Drive and ride defensively, always expect the unexpected

Safety Precautions:

safety, snowmobile, winter recreation, logging
