Goin’ for a rip, eh!
Holy snow! Last week we were up in and around the Waskesiu Wilderness Region and we figured, why not try out snowmobiling?
We were staying at Sunset Bay Resort, located lakeside at Emma Lake, and arranged to have a guided tour of the area. Personally, I’ve never driven a snowmobile before…and it was quite the rush!
After being given some training we hit the trails. It takes a little bit to get used to the power that those machines have (a few excitable expletives may or may not have been whispered *cough*, ok screamed out in joy).
There are so many areas to discover by snowmobile; from gorgeous forested trails to wide open lake surfaces. It really is a great way to get a whole new perspective on the region and get in the thick of it.
Along the trail are warm up shelters so, if you need a bathroom break, place to warm up, or to grab a bite to eat the next stop is just up the trail. Is there really anything better than a fire roasted hot dog after you’ve been riding all day?
It may have been my first time snowmobiling, but it won’t be the last. I will also have to head back to Sunset Bay Resort - try out the ice fishing, take a skate on the lake and test out more delicious dishes at their licensed restaurant.
