People are always searching for a place to ride that is more than just ditch hopping... a place worthwhile.
No matter what, it seems people have to load up the sled and go somewhere to find such a place...
Well, you can stop hunting for a nice place to ride that also offers trail-side accommodations, fuel, food and great staging areas.
Swan River Valley, a sled friendly community…
what a concept!!
Yes there are a few ditches (it isn’t possible to exclude ditches altogether) but they quickly turn into flat running fields, winding scenic wooded terrain, meadows, swamps, rolling hills, and the odd ravine. There are lots of places to open it up full throttle and other places to just enjoy the scenery. The club takes exceptional care of approximately 375 km of trails, and it shows in the quality of the trails. The trails of the Swan River Valley seem to get snow that other regions don’t. Year in and year out, other areas are lacking snow, but we always seen to get enough to properly maintain our trails. This fact, plus the care the club takes, makes it an excellent sledding destination.
Our trails have 4 comfy and well stocked warm-up shacks for anyone to use while on the trails, complete with wood-burning stoves for warmth and outdoor fire pits if you want to have a wiener roast with the kids. They also have solar powered lighting and a bbq if you want a little more than a hot dog. Fuel and food are available within easy sledding distance right along the trails, and the trails in the SVSA catchment area connect up with many other club trails such as North Mountian Riders, Intermountain, and various clubs in Saskatchewan.
I hope you have as much fun on the trails as we do... If you enjoy the trails, you might consider becoming a member as well.
