Where to Get Your 2023 Early Bird OFSC Trail Pass

Buy your OFSC permits early to save $50 and be ready for an amazing year on #Ontariosnowtrails

After the overwhelming response by Ontario snowmobilers over the 8 years, the OFSC trail pass is available at early-bird prices again for the 2022-2023 season. The 2023 OFSC permits are available from September 1, 2022.

Get your OFSC permits online before November 1st to save 30% and secure your and your family's place on the trails for what's looking to be a return to the incredible Ontario winters we all know!

Fee Stability

To keep permits affordable and encourage early buying, there was only a slight increase in permit cost from last year. The 2023 Seasonal and Classic Trail Permit fees increased by $5 from last season. Early Bird fees will remain at $190 (Seasonal) or $150 (Classic).

These early fees are only available online at ofsc.on.ca from September 1st through November 1st, after which permit fees will increase. Under Ontario law, Snowmobile Trail Permits sold by the OFSC under the authority of the Ministry of Transportation are mandatory for recreational snowmobiling on OFSC Prescribed Trails.

Get Your Permit and Keep Ontario Sledders Sledding

Secure funding is good for the clubs. And what's good for the clubs is good for the rider. With over 200 clubs operating and maintaining over 33,000 km of trails it's possible to plan snowmobile trips across the province. What better way to experience the beauty of Ontario this winter than on a snowmobile?
