    It has been reported that early permit sales are up 35% over the same time last year. If there are possibly any small delays perhaps they are volume related.

    Driver Training

    I don't know if it is or isn't but it would be nice if reviewing the course material was free and if you needed the license and to take the test you would pay.

    I'm putting my money on Blake.... if there is snow to be found he will find it and ride it

    groomer driver s now need first aid

    paid... some choose to donate their pay back to the clubs... they also have to provide a drivers abstract It's all about protection from liability.... same reason the groomers are now having dashcams and satellite tracking

    I only bought one permit this year. I'm just going to carry it in my tank bag and use it for both sleds. Just kidding. If her sled sells it's gone, if not or until then I'll go with day permits when appropriate. With a puppy and relying on motels for sledding she won't be riding again.

    Great news. The last time I was there was less than stellar. I asked about the on site restaurant and was told yes... got there and it was closed. TV wasn't working and there was nothing they could do since maintenance had left for the day. Promised it would be fixed while we were out riding. It wasn't and maintenance again wasn't available. No matter how hard you try things will go wrong. When that happens make it right. I'll be there this winter to support the new owners that support us.

    You can always use the trail permit gift card to lock in your pricing. I used Internet Explorer and didn't have a problem. If I recall correctly from the AGM the fulfillment house has changed to one located in the Toronto area in proximity of the Dixie and Eglington postal centre with daily deliveries there not only OFSC processing but their other customer processing as well.

    Try that with two cars you have.... good luck

    I ordered mine online and opened my email within seconds of the OFSC website saying my transaction was complete. The email was already there. The online process took about two minutes or less and was extremely easy to use. The longest toughest part was entering my credit card number and expiry date.

    Couldn't possibly be Canada Post could it. I have had mail sent from a few blocks away take longer to get here than a few provinces away and they both had the same postmark date

    Right now I'm torn... the wife says she is done with sledding. First thought was sell her sled even though it has less than 1,000 km on it. Second thought is keep it and use day permits when someone else wants to come along or when I'm looking for someone to ride so I'm not going solo which I'm not a fan of just in case something goes wrong.

    Announcement coming soon

    Congrats to you and the family Bill. The only businesses that thrive and grow are those that treat their customers right. Your customer service formula is working.

    First week of November is plenty early enough to plan a trip that likely won't be possible for 6 weeks out or more. I know a whole bunch of ATV riders that aren't snowmobilers and recently rode the closed snowmobile trails from Coldwater to Big Chute Marina. They all thought that if it was a snowmobile trail that it was an ATV trail as well. They were surprised to learn it wasn't and that they were trespassing.

    If you can figure out where the trail is so can the ATV riders, hunters, dirt bikers etc. that the landowners don't want on their property.

    Absolutely... It amazes me that people don't hesitate to spend $15K on a sled, $7K+ on a trailer, all the gear, boots, suits and helmets, $100+ for a motel/hotel room for a place to sleep for possibly two nights per weekend. $100 a day for breakfast, lunch and dinner plus the bar bill, then whine about the best bargain to participate in the sport... the trail permit.
