Where we love to ride: popular spots for snowmobiling near Terrace

The Terrace area is your home base for heading out to some popular snowmobile trails. Most of the access points are as close to Terrace as six kilometres away, while others area accessed up to 50 km away. These include both tenured and non-tenured riding and some local favourites include Sterling Mountain, Trapper Mountain, Copper Mountain, South Douglas, Anweiler Ridge, Big Cedar, Sleeping Beauty, Bolton Ridge and more.

Sterling Mountain is a popular destination to take the family with incredible views. There is tons of terrain for novice to advanced riders to enjoy. The main route is maintained by the Skeena Valley Snowmobile Association all the way to the tree line and you can even check out the day cabins at Jack's Lake and Sterling Lake.

The South Douglas' main road is also groomed to its access point. This area is for the more experienced riders. South Douglas also has a wide variety of terrain, and when conditions are right, lots of deep powder and access to a great cabin as well.

Trapper Mountain also has a cabin maintained by the Skeena Valley Snowmobile Association.
