With plenty of recent snowfall, staff at Riding Mountain National Park are reminding people that snowmobiles and other similar vehicles are largely prohibited in the park.
Only on a couple of trails along the edge of the park are any over-snow vehicles allowed, except for people travelling to and from ice-fishing huts on Clear Lake, or for authorized volunteers who are maintaining cross-country ski trails.
Snowmobiling is also prohibited on federally administered Crown land that is next to the park.
The few areas of Riding Mountain National Park where snowmobiling is allowed are the Russell Trail on the northwest corner of the park, and designated sections of the park boundary that are maintained by the Ochre River Snowmobile Club and the Dauphin Snowmobile Club.
Anyone with questions about snowmobiling in the park can contact the Riding Mountain National Park office at 204-848-7275 or email RMNP.email@example.com.
