Every snowmobile adventure requires one very important element: snow! Averaging more than 120 inches annually, Sault Ste. Marie is a snowmobiler’s dream and the perfect hub from which to explore hundreds of miles of groomed trails across the Eastern Upper Peninsula and beyond.
Connecting a variety of small communities and running through national forests, state forest lands and snow-covered hills and plains across the region, touring the EUP by snowmobile is both exhilarating and awe-inspiring. Watch for the abundant wildlife and be sure to leave time for hearty lunches and dinners at area restaurants and taverns. Most, but not all, city streets are open to safe snowmobiling and allow riders access to businesses and lodging.
A break from the trail is equally exhilarating at Kewadin Casino or in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, where a local brew pub, wineries, and restaurants await you. You can also take advantage of our snow with these great winter activities. Be sure to put the first Saturday in February on your calendar, when the International 500 Snowmobile Race brings NASCAR-style excitement to our snowy city.
Opening city streets is regarded by many as the ultimate invitation to the snowmobile enthusiasts seeking the right combination of city lodging, restaurants, and entertainment near wooded, well-groomed trails connected to the city by a tunnel beneath I-75.
