(November 3, 2014 - Barrie, ON) – Following the resounding success of its pre-November 1st online sales campaign, the not-for-profit Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) invites Ontarians to experience exceptional fun, camaraderie and adventure by purchasing a Snowmobile Trail Permit for a special pre-December 1 fee. 2015 Snowmobile Trail Permits continue to be available online, but for the first time this season, are now also available directly from the OFSC’s community based snowmobile clubs and their volunteers or from club designated retail outlets across the province. There are two permit types available until December 1:
Seasonal Permit - Seasonal Permits are available online or from club retail outlets on or before December 1 for $210 – a saving of $50 off the regular permit fee of $260. Snowmobilers purchasing online at www.ofsc.on.ca will not be charged a processing fee.
Classic Permit - Any snowmobiler owning a sled that is model year 1999 or older is entitled to buy a 2015 Classic Permit. Primarily available online for $140 on or before December 1, a Classic Permit offers a saving of $30 off the regular fee of $170. Classic Permits are also available on a limited basis through OFSC district offices or their designated outlet. Snowmobilers purchasing online at www.ofsc.on.ca will not be charged a processing fee.
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 trail operational costs. These trails generate almost $1.7 billion of winter tourism economic impact annually, while enabling family riders from all walks of life to enjoy winter outdoors 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 snowmobiles entering an OFSC trail for recreational sledding to display a valid permit. For more information on 2015 Snowmobile Trail Permits visit www.ofsc.on.ca.
The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is a volunteer led not-for-profit association, which through strong leadership, provides a wide range of quality programs and services to, and on behalf of, its member organizations.
