Early Season Night Snowmobiling
Searchmont is located in the Lake Superior Snow-Belt, north-east of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
This area is consistantly an early season snowmobiling destination, sometimes riding starts in late October, but almost always in November. There are plenty of logging roads and bush trails to get out and test the sleds. On this December 1st outing, we were able to cover the entire evening without running out of snow in this area.
On this particular early-season start, there was no shortage of snow. One of the logging roads brought us to a high ridge that rises as much as 700' from the lake below resulting in 16" of snow, which is very desecent for December 1st, in this part of Ontario. The Valley depths below had no less than 12" at any given location.
This particular area has tradionally been a great starting point for interior snowmobiling, where the snowplow stops and the deep snow starts.
