Nipawin Saskatchewan
Recreation - Snowmobiling  
Snowmobiling is vastly important to Nipawin’s economy, and culture. Over 300 kilometres of groomed trails crisscross the area, including the Trans-Canadian Snowmobile Trail. The groomed trails provide residents and visitors with safe and enjoyable snowmobiling.
In addition to local groomed trails and the Trans-Canadian Snowmobile Trail, snowmobilers can also enjoy a safe river crossing at Nipawin’s Francois-Finlay Dam. The crossing was officially opened in 2004, and was spearheaded by the Nipawin Economic Development & Tourism Department in partnership with the RCMP, the Elks, Twin Lakes Trail Blazers Snowmobile Club, SaskPower, and the Nipawin Economic Development Committee.

The Twin Lakes Trail Blazers is a local group for snowmobile enthusiasts. The Trail Blazers create and maintain over 300 kilometres of groomed trails in the Nipawin area.
