Looking for some exceptional Ontario sledding getaways this winter? The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is promoting 25 Snow Tours for the coming season. These self-guided rides showcase some of this province’s best riding experiences and most popular snowmobiling regions. 

No other snowmobiling jurisdiction in North America offers anything as developed, as turnkey or as easy to navigate as OFSC-promoted Snow Tours. Each Snow Tour is a route carefully planned by its participating OFSC district on established trails that are well mapped, marked, maintained and have good access to services. 


The essential concept behind Snow Tours is to take as much of the guesswork and uncertainty out of your sledding as possible, leaving you to simply enjoy a memorable, no hassle ride experience with friends and family. So each participating OFSC district has committed that their Snow Tour trails will be maintained to the highest possible consistency and quality with priority grooming and that you’ll be able to find your way around following their Snow Tour signs.

Here’s a Snow Tour planning preview…so click on the Snow Tours logo and start dreaming about great rides this winter!


About Snow Tour Logos


SnowTours smaller

The Snow Tour symbol above is the umbrella provincial Snow Tour logo. It is only used to identify the Snow Tours being officially promoted by the OFSC, so look for it on OFSC materials and with participating OFSC districts.


Participating OFSC districts have developed their own logos to brand each of their Snow Tours (see district logos in Snow Tour list on OFSC website). Familiarize yourself with these logos, because they are on the trail signs you will be following to navigate a Snow Tour this season.
