Choose From 4 Different Groomed Trails

Allan Creek Trail

AllanCreek Trail Map

The Allan Creek trail is the first to open each season in the Valemount area and its lakes, bowls, meadows, and steep hills make it a favour­ite. A cabin at the trail­head offers shelter for family outings. Mount Milton in the middle of the area has been used for the annual BC Snowmobile Association sectioned hill climb.

The Allan Creek trail is one of the easiest areas to ride, although it can be diffi­cult in new snow condi­tions.

The trail­head parking lot is just off Highway 5, 35km south of Valemount. The trail system uses a Forest Service Road (often not snow cleared) and old trails to gain access to the alpine area. Watch for “No Snomobiling” signs to the west of Premier Range.

Chappell Creek (Miledge Creek) Trail

The Chappell or Miledge Creek trail is easy to ride under normal groomed condi­tions.

The alpine area is located 25 km from the parking lot. The trail is located to the west of Highway 5 , 45 km south of Valemount.

The trail system partially uses Forest Service Roads, fire and skid trails to access alpine areas at the headwa­ters of Chappell Creek. The combin­a­tion of weather to this area (heavy snowfall, winds, low clouds…) and rugged terrain create danger­ous condi­tions. Cornices regularly develop on the leeward side of ridges. Sledders should be prepared for white outs and condi­tions condu­cive to avalanches. First time users should always go with others well famil­iar with the trail system.

Also a major concern in the winter time are the Mountain Caribou. Difficult snow condi­tions, low forage add up to poor physical condi­tions of the animals. Do not pursue or other­wise harass the wildlife! If you sight them move quietly away, going about 1 km before resum­ing normal activ­ity.

Keep in mind that mountain caribou studies will be in process this winter. These snowmobil­ing areas are being monitored for caribou use and conflicts with snowmobil­ing.

Clemina Creek

At Clemina Creek the trails are wide and easy to ride. The trail­head location is east of Highway 5, 34 km south of Valemount. The trails follow the valley, contain­ing the most north-easterly branch of Clemina Creek and go onto the ridge ( Malton Range) between Clemina Creek and Kinbasket Lake.

Your first access trail to the alpine area is left up Morning Glory trail at 15 km. At the 19km warm-up-cabin, the Windtunnel trail to the left also provides alpine access. At 21 km the valley trail swings left to access Goat Ridge Bowl.

These trails provide good access to the alpine area for average riders, except in new snow condi­tions. In this case you should have the company of exper­i­enced mountain riders! Sledding from one alpine area to another is possible but should not be attemp­ted without help from sleddders, that know snow condi­tions and area very well. It is very easy to get into Danger Basin and not be able to get out either end without towing your machine by hand . Danger basin should only be explored under good snow condi­tions by exper­i­enced sledders. And you should be sure of being able to return by the entry route used .

Cautions: There are no avalanche hazard forecasts avail­able for this area!. The meadow trail will bypass several avalanche paths and turn onto Goat Ridge Trail at the start of Avalanche Valley. These avalanche paths and the whole of Avalanche Valley are extremely danger­ous and you should avoid them. Entering Goat Ridge Bowl, Danger Basin and Lakeview is gener­ally sled by way of Meadow Trail and Goat Ridge Trail.

West Ridge Trail

A 33 km circuit, the West Ridge trail starts from the west side of Highway 5 at the edge of Valemount. The trail leads to a ridge that is suitable for testing a sled or just enjoy­ing a quick ride close to town. The trails are groomed and suitable for the begin­ner to ride.

Please note that the ridge and the alpine areas above the trail are closed to snowmobil­ing. The annual Snowarama of the Timberline Snow Goers Club is held on this trail because of its suitab­il­ity for riders of every age and exper­i­ence.
