Welcome to Kirkland Lake,

Northeastern Ontario Canada.

Snowmobile Advisory: Due to the lack of snow in our area (roughly 10 to 20cm ((6" to 8")) on the ground as of February 19th, 2007) I do not recommend that you snowmobile in this area this season. According to the weather network we are below the normal temperatures and no sufficient snow is expected in our area for at least another week.

At this time I would also like to voice my concerns with the Ontario Provincial Police and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (O.F.S.C.) TV Advertizement for snowmobiling in Ontario.

I am getting older and perhaps my hearing is going bad as well as my eyes but to date and as far as I can remember, I have never seen or heard on the TV Ad, that there are exceptions to snowmobiling in Ontario, by not paying for a trail permit.

If you visit the OFSC site, you should check out their Snowmobiling in Ontario and the Law page. You should notice that they put in big bold letters that Permits Are Mandatory In Ontario and that An Ontario Trail Permit is required to travel on Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) Prescribed Trails. But look at the STOP graphic and notice the asterisk at the end of the sentence: It is the Law in Ontario for recreational sleds*. Then check out the fine print at the bottom of the graphic. *Exceptions or partial exceptions for specific user groups.

Please Note: I am not a lawyer so "Please" read the Motorized Snow Vehicles Act, ONTARIO REGULATION 185/01 Trail Permits as the listed Exemptions of this act, may apply to you. You should also read the Road Access Act R.S.O. 1990, Chapter R.34 as this may also apply to you. However, if it is your intent to actually use the OFSC trails for snowmobiling purposes, I would "STRONGLY" suggest that you purchase a permit.
