Don Mitchell of Shuswap Lake Motel & Resort gives us advice about snowmobiling in the Shuswap.

The season starts near the end of November and can continue until late May. Depths of snow can easily range up to 15 feet in some of the alpine areas and many hills have groomed trails, spacious chalets and good signage for getting around the mountains. Winter in the Shuswap is fantastic with good driving on the roads and temperatures that are easy to bear.

Shuswap Lake Motel is a great place to use as a base camp as you explore a different hill every day of you stay. With full kitchens and private bedrooms and cable television your evenings will be relaxing after your hard days having fun on the hills. For cross country skiers we have a hill designated only for you which is about a 35 minute drive away and for down hill skiers we have 2 world class hills about one and one-half hours drive away.
