Snow Tours

Snow Tours are self-guided rides that showcase some of our province’s best riding experiences and well-known snowmobiling regions. Each Snow Tour is a route carefully planned and maintained by its participating OFSC district (note: actual distances may vary slightly due to trail changes). Snow Tours are laid out on trails that are well mapped, well marked and have good access to services.

Check back regularly, we will be adding more tours as they become available!
