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!
