Family Day Weekend / Try OFSC Trails Free Weekend / 16-18 Feb 2013

In cooperation with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO), the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) is celebrating Ontario’s mid‐winter Family Day Long Weekend by launching a new 2013 Try Our Trails Permit, available online at no cost and valid from February 16 until February 18, 2013.

The 2013 Try Our Trails Permit is available only by registering online at www.ofsc.on.ca, completing the Try Our Trails Permit application form https://ofsconlinepermits.ca/ and printing out a permit good for Family Day Long Weekend only. There is no charge for either the 2013 Try Our Trails Permit or the registration process, but to access OFSC trails, the printed permit must be affixed to the sled to which it is assigned in accordance with Ontario law.

Be advised that any sled on OFSC trails without a permit on Family Day Weekend is illegal and can incur a fine of up to $1,000. Riders must also carry a valid driver’s licence or Motorized Snow Vehicle Operator’s Licence, sled registration, proof of insurance, and follow all the rules and assumptions for safe OFSC trail riding.
