Don't forget your golf clubs! Chetwynd has
two challenging courses, sure to test
your skills and take your breath away with
spectacular views. The Moberly Lake &
District Golf course is located near
Moberly Lake and offers nine holes of
golf, club and cart rentals as well as a
licensed clubhouse. Natural Springs Golf
Resort offers nine holes of golf, a
driving range, club and cart rentals and
a licensed clubhouse.
Let it snow! Chetwynd is a great place to
spend some time in the winter months.
Excellent snowmobiling can be found just
a short drive from town. Cross-country
skiers can take in the trails in the
Chetwynd community forest, and downhill
skiers and snowboarders can head out to
nearby Powder King Ski Area, famous for
receiving up to 40 feet of dry powder snow
per year!
Chainsaw carvings were chosen as an
attraction for Chetwynd as they showcase
the true heart and soul of Chetwynd. The
predominately nature focused theme of the
carvings reflects the wild nature of the
area. The use of wood also reflects
its close ties with the forest industry. To
see the carvers in action, plan to be in
Chetwynd the second weekend in June to
watch the skilled artists turn a simple log
into a life long work of art to be admired for
years to come.
The Visitor Centre offers a daily interpretive
tour of the chainsaw carvings. If you don't
have time to take the tour, pick up a
map of the locations and guide yourself
around town.
