Growing up this was my favourite gift! Unless of course I needed pistons or performance parts. The value of OFSC Gift Card that enables someone to purchase their 2022/2023 Ontario Snowmobiling Permit is infinite, just like the smiles we all get while riding the trails that so many in the OFSC and each individual snowmobile club has poured their heat into. Granting riders access to thousands and thousands of well-groomed trails, it's truly the gift that keeps on giving.

2. The Muffpot

Trailside restaurants are doing their best to offer takeout this winter. Some have enough space to offer social distanced dining, but you may wait in line, so you may want to order a second meal to go! You may also be an excellent cook or have someone in the house that sends you hearty meals for your trip. In either scenario, you'll need a handy device to warm up your meal on the trail. The Muffpot ,or one of these other branded versions, is the best way enjoy a hot meal while riding.

3. Go Snowmobiling Ontario App For Android & iOs

There is no question that modern technology has helped advance our iron, but it is also driving our access to trail information and safety. The OFSC has worked hard to develop their app to help you navigate our 30,000 km of trails here in Ontario.  Features include data-free location sharing, downloadable info for easier offline use, and more! Maybe your buddies are still rocking the paper trail maps, but you can surprise someone with the gift of the Go Snowmobile Ontario App!
