March Snowmobiling in Ontario

Each year, snowmobilers flock to Ontario snow trails for one last hurrah. Here are the best places to go to find the snow...

As winter in Ontario progresses into March, the snow line and snowmobile conditions typically begin to shift farther north. Ontario snowmobilers move with it, initially to the North Bay and Mattawa area, then further up into Northeastern Ontario, comprised of OFSC District 14 and District 15. Here, in what is truly the Great White North, winter delivers exceptional trail riding throughout March break and often into early April. So this is an excellent time to plan your last ride of the season in Ontario, be it a long weekend getaway or full week of saddlebag touring.

Ontario offers many different snowmobiling opportunities for March and our signature, self-guided tours are among the very best. So why bother re-inventing the wheel by trying to find your own way on snowmobile trails in Ontario when you can simply plug into one of our existing, proven and well-established tours to snowmobile your brains out? Any one of these remarkable tours will fulfil your ultimate craving and make memories that will sustain you until the snow flies to make great snowmobile conditions again next winter.


Located in the northeastern sector of the province, due north of the City of North Bay, you'll find well-established snowmobile staging centres like Cochrane, Kirkland Lake, New Liskeard and Timmins. These towns provide starting points for several of Ontario’s renowned signature tours, including, the Abitibi Canyon Loop, the Gold Rush Tour and the massive Northern Corridor Adventure Tour.

The Quality Inn, New Liskeard and Cedar Meadows in Timmins are popular staging points for the Gold Rush Tour. Or check out the Thriftlodge, Cochrane as the launch point for your Abitibi Canyon Base Camp ride to Moosonee via the legendary Abitibi Canyon or the Northern Corridor Adventure Tour.

Whatever your northern choice for Ontario snowmobile trails riding in March, you’ll find great snowmobile conditions!
