As October arrives, the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is gearing up for winter.

It’s selling seasonal permits this month for a special pre-season fee of $180, only when purchased online at www.ofsc.on.ca. The regular seasonal permit fee after November 1 is $260.

The November 1 $180 option last winter attracted over 18,000 new permit buyers. That was a 21 per cent permit sales spike, and helped with the launch of a new business model for trail operations by the OFSC.

Proceeds from the sale of the trail permits required to enter OFSC trails are the major source of funding for both the trail operations of local snowmobile clubs and their provincial organization.
