Snowmobiling & The Law

With over 49,000 kilometres of groomed OFSC snowmobile trails in Ontario, there is trail access to virtually every destination you may choose. Unless you are an expert woodsman or an experienced outdoors person, why even consider heading off cross-country or breaking your own trail into the uncharted wilderness when you can get there safer, sooner and more directly on an OFSC snowmobile trail?

Before going anywhere, the OFSC strongly recommends that you contact both your provincial tourism office and snowmobile association to obtain the brochures, maps and other information necessary to plan a safe, responsible snowmobile tour.

Why are OFSC trails so much safer? Generally, they are clearly marked and well-defined corridors with fewer dangerous surprises. Because they are groomed and used regularly, they tend to be smoother and wider with better sight lines and fewer hazardous corners, intersections, inclines and obstacles. Most water crossings and ditches are bridged and ice crossings are usually staked or tree lined. Traffic signs are prevalent throughout the system to give riders as much advance warning as possible of trail conditions ahead.

While the trail system will not always be perfect and so must always be used with care and caution by responsible snowmobilers, one thing is certain, OFSC trails do lead somewhere. Assisted by on-trail directional signage and carrying the proper trail maps, snowmobilers can be assured that the trail they are on will eventually lead them to services, amenities and help.
