Driving a snowmobile through the new snow & roaming wildlife

We just received a fresh foot of snow in the Chilcotin Mountains, making our 500 km of trails especially inviting!
On the drive to the Chilcotin Holidays Guest Ranch, we stopped to check out some fresh cougar tracks and Kevan Bracewell, owner of the ranch, showed us how to determine the size of the mountain lion by putting an index finger into one of the toe prints. The cougar that had made these tracks was a big one. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the cat itself because it had come through long before we got there. Kevan explained that the cougar was hunting for mountain sheep, some of the 150-head herd living along the mountain slopes that we had seen earlier, feeding along the side of the Highway.
But we did watch a lone wolf crossing a frozen lake. Other wildlife that may be sighted by a watchful wildlife spotter driving a snowmobile are moose and mule deer.

Chilcotin Holidays believes that every encounter with nature, no matter how brief, has the potential to change a life. We live this belief by offering unparalleled wilderness access as a solution for society's extreme disconnection from nature. Come and experience driving a snowmobile at our wilderness ranch!
