Snowmobile fun at Nimpo Lake

There’s deep powder through the Rainbow mountain range

There’s deep powder through the Rainbow Mountain Range, just 40kms west of Anahim Lake.  The parking lot for the Rainbow Mtns is at the top of the famous Bella Coola Hill at an elevation of about 5500’. Historically a group of snowmobilers would sled south from the end of a gravel road and come through Corkscrew basin to Anahim every winter.

This year’s tour group was comprised of 3 Williams Lake residents, Richard Simon and Ted Hlokoff of Nimpo Lake and Dave Morin of Vanderhoof.

“We were nearly half of the riders enjoying  deep powder and sunshine of the wilderness,” Hlokoff said,  “Fresh tracks all day long and an unending mountain range of deep snow.  Peeps and Spot locators are worn be most riders.”
