Deer Lake is Newfoundland’s Snowmobile Hub!

dl-in-town-trail-mapDeer Lake is the Snowmobile Hub of Newfoundland! The town has played an aggressive role in marketing itself as the Snowmobile Hub. The Town of Deer Lake has the advantage of being located at the centre of a network of groomed trails that lead to the deep powder and untouched vistas of our back country.

As the Snowmobile Hub of Newfoundland, the Town of Deer Lake has made significant efforts to become snowmobile-friendly. There are offloading sites at each of the hotels and at other popular staging areas. In addition, the municipality has also developed a trail within the community. These efforts have not gone unnoticed by media outlets, including Sledworthy magazine.

Local businesspeople have realized the development potential and are offering snowmobile rentals and tour packages. These efforts were recognized by Dennis Burns, president of the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Clubs (CCSO), who in this article from Sledworthy magazine described the opportunity to develop snowmobile tourism in the Deer Lake area as a “gold mine.” Start planning your trip now to discover what so many people are raving about!
