Test Drive OFSC Trails at no Cost!

Test Drive OFSC Trails at no Cost!




Last winter, almost 11,000 Ontarians tested OFSC snowmobile trails with a no cost Try Our Trails Permit affixed to their sleds. The promotion was so successful that the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is inviting first timers, newbies and former snowmobilers to do it all over again in 2014. Regular permit buyers are also invited to bring their families and friends along for a ride at no charge. 

In cooperation with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO), the OFSC is celebrating Ontario’s only mid-winter statutory holiday long weekend with the return of the 2014 no cost “Try Our Trails” Permit to encourage more people to get outdoors and enjoy winter by going snowmobiling on OFSC trails. This permit is available without payment from those who pre-register online and is valid only from 12:01 AM Saturday, February 15 until 11:59 PM on Monday, February 17, 2014. Permit registrations start online at 12:01 AM on Saturday, February 1.

The 2014 no cost Try Our Trails Permit is available only by pre-registering online at www.ofsc.on.ca and printing out a permit good for Ontario’s Snowmobiling Family Day Long Weekend only. There is no charge for either the 2014 Try Our Trails Permit or the registration process, but to access OFSC trails, a printed permit must be affixed to the sled to which it is assigned in accordance with Ontario law. Any sled on OFSC trails without a permit on Ontario’s Snowmobiling Family Day Long Weekend is illegal and the operator can be subject to a fine of up to $1,000. Riders must also carry a valid driver’s licence or Snow Vehicle Operator’s Licence, sled registration, proof of insurance, and follow all the rules and assumptions for safe OFSC trail riding.
