BLUE LAKE TRAILHEAD: approximately 17km east of Sicamous.

Blue Lake can accommodate the novices, family sledders, and those who like to explore the backcountry. Without overly steep terrain, this area features wide open alpine and sub alpine terrain. For those who like to go mostly vertical, a little poking around can reveal some great climbing areas. The Blue Lake cabin has a new stove and the cabin is located in a nice open area that includes a training hill for novices. The cabin was built by club member, Dave Micku of Sandy Ridge Construction, along with many club volunteers. Be sure to bring your camera to save memories of the beautiful vistas in this powder paradise.

Since Blue Lake is quickly becoming one of Sled Sicamous’ more popular areas, we are excited to announce some operational changes at the parking lot that will hopefully maximize our space, and optimize your check-in process. This year our booth is located slightly up trail to allow sledders to park and get organized before coming up to purchase day passes or check-in with your membership. Parking staff will be on site on the weekends to make the most of our parking lot space, but we ask that if you visit Blue Lake or any of our other areas that you ‘Mind the Gap’ and leave as little space between yourself and the vehicle before you as necessary.

Memberships must be pre-paid and purchased is through our online store; however, assistance is readily available through our office if needed. We’re confident that after a season of learning and exploring this new system, the EVSC will be able to offer even better check-in options at this booth and others in the years to come. We hope you enjoy your visit and, as always, sled safely!

These mountain areas can be treacherous at times and weather can change quickly, so please use caution when snowmobiling in the mountains and follow safe snowmobiling practices. Whenever possible, sign in at the cabins to report where you are planning to sled for that day and come prepared with overnight survival gear.

Emergencies can be reported to 911. Remember service is not always available in some mountain areas. (*You may find cell phone coverage at Blue Lake, Owlhead and Queest when you are at the height of land.*)
