I was wondering if anyone hs ever taken a trip to canada. I was thinking about ging with a couple buddies and was wondering what the trails were like and what i have to do to get up there. Also i was wondering if it is too expensive to even go.

Ton's of trails through Canada. Every Province will have their own fees, for example Ontario has almost 5000 miles of trails - permits range from 100 -250 depending on the length of your visit. Check the ofsc for open trails and conditions.

I live there :)
Plenty of trails, well groomed - some trails are 6 sleds wide.
We just went through a warm spell, so I'd wait a few weeks for better conditions.
You may want to check some of the other provinces close to you (Quebec, New Brunswick) to see what their trails are like.

canada could be lots of fun,make sure you do your homework first.im in winnipeg(just north of north dakota)and we havent had much snow,lots of mud etc poking through the snow....id hate to see a guy go all that way and ride on gravel roads lol and like jayc said you might want to brush up on your french and make sure when you riding through towns you slow down.when these guys get woken up by revving sleds they come flying out of their igloos ,hop on their dog sleighs and catch you!!!!!!jk but good luck!!!o yea,dont eat the yellow snow up here

I live in Edmonton and there's lots of everything within a few hours of here. wide open prairie, rolling hills, mountains and especially the "Iron Horse trail." Its where the old train tracks were going through the countryside but they took them out and left the high ground with most of the bridges intact. The trail itself is pretty boring-flat and straight-but it leads to some fun stuff along the way. And not many people here in alberta speak french. Or even like french people. I don't.
Only problem with Edmonton is it's about a 6.5 hour drive from the border. Just get to Great Falls, Montana and keep going.

Actually Ontario has over 21000 miles of trails. So shouldn't be a problem finding a place to ride!

If you decide to come to canada. what kind of ridding do you like? If it is a nice mountian ride you are after, go to central British Columbia. A heritage town called Barkerville. Easy to find and acomidations in Quesnel British Columbia. are great as well. I grew up In Prince george B.C. I know these areas well . Worth the trip.
