Snowmobile Snow Updates and Trail Conditions
Pick your getaway location from more than 25 snowmobile packages and check check with both the property owner and the The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). OFSC trails are clearly marked and well-defined corridors with fewer dangerous surprises. Because they are groomed and used regularly, overall they are smoother and wider, with better sight lines and fewer hazardous corners, intersections, inclines and obstacles.Traffic signs are prevalent throughout the system to give riders as much advance warning as possible of trail conditions ahead. Check snowmobile trail status and conditions in your resort destination area before heading out.
On your way north to the snowbelt areas you need to stay alert, slow down and stay in control — the three key elements of safe winter driving. Drive according to highway and weather snow and ice conditions. Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Avoid situations where you may have to brake suddenly on a slippery surface.
Watch out for black ice! If snow white-outs can be avoided, get off the highway at the nearest exit and wait out the storm. See more information on road safety during the winter in Ontario. Make sure you get your snow tires before heading north in Ontario.
