During the 2022/2023 winter road season, clients learned about ice and traffic safety before spending the afternoon exploring the ice roads on our land-based snowmobiles. While most people will never have the opportunity to experience such an adventure, Muskrat Dam is one of the many communities that connect the ice roads allowing the clients to enjoy a unique part of northern living. 

The winter roads are an integral part of remote First Nation Northern communities, and the season is an important time for them as most of the goods they rely on year-round are transported from Thunder Bay and Sioux Lookout when the ice becomes thick enough to support transport travel. The ice roads also connect communities together that are only accessible by boat or plane during the rest of the year allowing friends and family the opportunity to spend more time together.
