Every snowmobile adventure requires one very important element: snow! Averaging more than 120 inches annually, Sault Ste. Marie is a snowmobiler’s dream and the perfect hub from which to explore hundreds of miles of groomed trails across the Eastern Upper Peninsula and beyond.
Trails connect a variety of small communities, national forests, state forest lands, snow-covered hills, and plains across the region. Touring the EUP by snowmobile is both exhilarating and awe-inspiring. Watch for the abundant wildlife and be sure to leave time for hearty lunches and dinners at area restaurants and taverns.
Most, but not all, city streets are open to safe snowmobiling and allow riders access to businesses and lodging. A break from the trail is equally exhilarating at Kewadin Casino or in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, where a local brew pub, wineries, and restaurants await you. Check out the city trail map here.
Be sure to put the first Saturday in February on your calendar, when the International 500 Snowmobile Race brings NASCAR-style excitement to the snowy city.
