Vermilion, AB - Access is everything, whether you are going skiing or sledding and the effort to get there draws the line between a day adventure or an odyssey. For Vermilion local, Jim Zadorozny, of the Ridge Riders Snowmobile Club, there is nothing better than this.
“I leave from my driveway sled for four to five hours and come right back to my house, no trailer involved!” This isn’t just for residents, with an in-town Vermilion trail network, anyone can simply park and ride.
Terrain, including river valleys that connect to the North Saskatchewan River, and connect to Edmonton.
“You are kind of away but not really as you are still connected to town," says Sandhu, who spent the day exploring the landscape, including a river valley that connect all the way to Edmonton.
