First, check with the local snowmobile clubs that groom the trails to ensure the area you want to ride in has open trails with good snow conditions. Next, fuel stops. In some remote areas, fuel stops are few and far between. Ensuring every sled in the group is sufficiently fueled to make the next leg of the journey is essential. With the BRP GO! app, you can see where fuel stops are and plan according to your travel group’s needs. The LinQ Fuel Caddy is also a great little piece of “fuel insurance” that can save a trip.
After ensuring everyone will have enough fuel to make the trip, look for any unique areas of interest along the route. Waterfalls and lookout areas along the trail are always a great stop for a photo op. These stops not only are great for the scenic views, but also give riders a chance to stop and stretch.
Lastly, where to spend the night. Whether it’s a hotel, motel or resort, look for spots that support the local trail systems. Supporting the businesses is absolutely necessary to ensure the trail system will be there for years to come.
