Where do we ride?
We ride primarily in Nisbet Forest , known in the early teens about a hundred years ago as the Pines Forest Reserve Snowmobiling in and around No Rock Nisbet Forest is all about snowmobiling in one of the most diversified areas in the World! Nisbet Forest is formulated from a base of rolling sand dunes, which are covered in a variety of trees predominately birch and evergreen.
We have endless snowmobiling opportunities that we tend to take for granted. In Saskatchewan some destinations do have groomed trails (thousands of Kilometers of them across Saskatchewan). But Snocruise specializes in wilderness Cross Country Riding TOURS by pulling off the route 66 groomed trail near the town of Ducklake, then heading thru and around Nisbet Forest. There is no better way to see the country side and the tours highlights and features are based on a theme or interest that YOU have SELECTED! We're not going to find ourselves boxed into some trail that goes on for 5 to 6 hours through a dense forest, without a change of scenery! They say variety is the spice of life, and nothing could be more true to sledd'in in No-Rock Nisbet, or for you Folks with a Historical Interest we'll call it No-Rock Pines Reserve.
An important point to make is in this name, you will notice that nothing in the area is known as "Rocky This" or "Rocky That". The Nisbet Forest, is a forest of mixed tree types growing on sand dunes that would look similar to the Sahara Desert ! Technically speaking, Nisbet is all Delta Silt moved into huge dunes from the flow of the rivers from an ancient time. The chances of hitting a "rock" (the snowmobile's hidden enemy) is about a zillion to one! So that's not to say there are no hazards in Saskatchewan, in fact riding cross country is not for the faint of heart, and that many hazards do exist, but, falling off of a mountain, getting socked in a hotel room for a week at a time or getting caught up in an avalanche is not any of them, but that's partly why you decided to snowmobile Nisbet Forest! Then there's nothing like taking a tour.....right! There's nothing like popping off of a forest trail, just to find a pristine rolling meadow in front of you. Then if your feel' in a little racy it's time to squeeze the throttle, then at the end of the meadow you might find a small lake connected by a Nisbet fur trade era trail, to one of the Saskatchewan River valleys. The Nisbet Forest area is a DIVERSIFIED countryside. Most people are surprised to hear that pretty much the lower 3/5ths of the province of Saskatchewan is a huge grid of roads that used to provide access to the 10's of thousands, of small pioneer farms that have disappeared. They disappeared because of the economics in the 20's or "Dirty" 30's! Their remains can be located on just about every 1/4 section in the Forest Fringe area surrounding Nisbet Forest. This massive assortment of largely abandoned or "summer roads" traveling through or around the Nisbet Forest have created the Saskatchewan Phenomena unlike any other place in the world. These back road corridors are typically filled with blow through snow banks essential to real snowmobiling fun! The Forest Fringe area surrounding Nisbet is loaded with a phenomenal mix of rolling prairie, cereal crop production farm land, and a country side that is dotted with remote log cabins, and old iron. There are old homesteads and the connecting remains of historical trails. Many of these trails including the historic Carlton Trail are from the 1700's and 1800's fur trade days, and are partly still in use today. Abandoned vintage highways, abandoned and pulled up railways, logging roads and cut lines connect to small lakes, creeks and trails bordering meadows, pastures, cultivated farm land and many rivers including the three largest in Saskatchewan! (get out your map and get informed!.... most locals can only name two!) Be assured that if you are on one of our tours, you will be riding a snowmobile specifically suited for this variety of riding conditions.
Our sleds are agile lightweight easy to handle machines ideal for the many different types of conditions you are about to encounter. On top of that you will be riding equipment that is all compatible with each other. In other words "we're not taking you on a hunting trip, where some of the participants find themselves equipped with elephant guns, while the rest are armed with B B guns". Comparably everyone will be equipped with snowmobiles likened to 30-30 Winchesters! What comparison could be better, in the Western Province of Saskatchewan known for the heritage and history that has created what we have? This is perfect for group settings where the various levels of experience , and those simple basics, mean that the equipment will work in your favor. Don't feel cheated just because our sleds are 500cc models, they are not just any 500! Our sleds are all liquid cooled models with 80 to 105HP, with is double the horse power of most family sleds which are fan air cooled. Just be thank full that you are here in Saskatchewan, where the weather is your friend and you only get bogged down or stuck if you choose to!
We can help with both full and self guided wilderness outpost excursions/resort suggestions.
