The Northern Manitoba Snowmobile Summit held last year, lead to the development of the Northern Manitoba Snowmobile Tourism Project, a project with a goal of bringing snowmobile tourism to Northern Manitoba.
The president of Snow Lakes Chamber of Commerce stated in a news release that this is a good project for Snow lake and Northern Manitoba because the community will be opened up for winter tourism
Alan McLauchlan the Northern Manitoba Tourism Consultant for Travel Manitoba says he is really excited for the project and the impact it will have on tourism in our region. He went on to say that snowmobile tourism is a multimillion dollar business and the north has lots of trails to connect our communities.
Once the project is completed snowmobilers will be able to ride from the west side of the province to Gilliam on groomed trails which will benefit lodges and other businesses.
McLachlan acknowledges the local snowmobile clubs and Snoman who have been instrumental in moving the project forward.
