Welcome to Ontario Federation Snowmobile Club District 17

Please check interactive trail guide before you ride.

Trails are Ready for the 2018-19 season. As of February 26,2019 some trails for the Borderland club are now limited.

Please ride with caution and watch for groomers on the trail.
Due to the storm in 2018, there are still a few closed trails, some have reroutes in effect.

North Western Ontario Trail Advisory
October 2018
A major district-wide storm late this fall brought down thousands of trees late in 2017 causing damage so extensive that some of our trails remain blocked at this time. Club volunteers are working continuously to clear these obstacles. We presently still have heavy equipment trying to make them available for the 2018-19 season.

Meanwhile, please consult the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide before every trail ride to view what is passable and what is not. For safety’s sake, stay off any trails that show RED, meaning unavailable. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we deal with this very difficult challenge.

Both the Seasonal and Classic Permit allow access to available OFSC trails anywhere in Ontario for the entire winter. OFSC member clubs operate over 30,000 kilometres of snowmobile trails throughout Ontario that rely on the revenue from the sale of permits to pay operational costs. These trails generate almost $1 billion of winter tourism economic impact annually, while enabling family riders from all walks of life to enjoy winter by visiting many places and sights only accessible by snowmobile.

OFSC trails are marked, mapped and maintained for the use and enjoyment of permit holders. Ontario law requires any snowmobile entering an OFSC trail for recreational sledding to display a valid permit. For more information on Snowmobile Trail Permits visit www.ofsc.on.ca.






Thank you to all the volunteers for your dedication!
