Trail Permits

Remember to Please Buy Where You Ride to support your club and its trails.

Your Snowmobile Trail Permit entitles you to enter and travel any open OFSC Prescribed Trail at any time during the winter. Permits generate the revenues OFSC clubs need to maintain snowmobile trails and buy groomers. They are the only source of funding for trail operations. By purchasing a permit, each rider contributes to the cost of providing snowmobile trails as part of the OFSC User Pay System.

Permits are only available online.
