Canada is home to one of the world’s most impressive snowmobile trail systems, with interconnected routes stretching across the entire country, from the Coast Mountains of British Columbia to the wild highlands of Nova Scotia. Whether you are looking for a casual afternoon ride along a groomed trail or prefer venturing deeper into the backcountry looking for challenging alpine terrain and hidden powder fields, the perfect snowmobiling destination is never too far away.

But with so many trail options found across the country and so much ground to cover, figuring out where to begin can be a daunting task. That’s why the Backroad Mapbooks team has put countless hours into charting thousands of snowmobile trails across the country. Our extensive database of snowmobile trail information is available in a variety of mediums, including digitally on our BRMB Navigator app and Backroad GPS Maps.
The Snowmobile Adventure Layer & the Backroad Navigator App
The Snowmobile Adventure Layer is one of 11 different Adventure Layers featured on the BRMB Navigator app, allowing you to toggle between different adventure activities while looking at the map. This ensures you are only seeing the information you need and keeps the map display from becoming overly cluttered. Simply select the Snowmobile adventure layer and the Backroad Navigator will display all of the snowmobile trail options in your selected region.
Your map will be filled to the brim with snowmobile information, including clearly identified trail tracks and marked trailheads along with viewpoints, campsites, backcountry huts and cabins, creeks and lakes and other features that you may encounter during your adventure. Our trails are also supplemented with written descriptions compiled by our team of outdoor writers and researches. These descriptions include information on trail distance, elevation gain, difficulty, access, highlights and more.
Of course, the BRMB Navigator app includes all the extra details you expect from our products including topographic contours, logging and industry roads, bush and backcountry roads, water and geographic features, park and Indian reserve boundaries, Crown and private lands and more. Other adventure layers, including multi-use trails, ATV trails, parks and campsites can be turned on and off at your leisure.
And if you are going off the grid on your next snowmobile adventure, simply download an offline map and explore your desired route with confidence, even outside of data and cell service. From casual rides along the rolling prairies to long-distance treks through the woods of Ontario, let the BRMB Snowmobile Adventure layer be your guide to your next sledding adventure.

The Backroad GPS Maps Difference
In addition to our BRMB Navigator App, all of the above mentioned snowmobile data is available for our Canada-wide line of GPS Maps. These Garmin-licensed maps are compatible with Garmin BasecampTM and MapsouceTM and offer all the cartographic detail and recreational information you have come to expect from a Backroad Mapbooks product. As an added bonus, our GPS Maps also cover the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
The GPS Maps are a favourite for those heading out on extended snowmobile adventures deep into the backcountry, since they do not rely on cell or internet service to operate. Snowmobile trails are clearly charted and identified, and we include trailheads and all the Points of Interest that pertain to your snowmobiling adventure including campsites, staging areas, warming shelters, lookouts and more.
No matter if you choose the BRMB Navigator app or the GPS Maps, you can expect to find the most up-to-date and detailed snowmobile information available in Canada right at your fingertips.
