Some question having it on the most popular riding weekend of the season, effectively taking away permit money. Your scenario is a case in point.
It's the first year Ontario is running the program.
Your aunt still has to print a permit and affix it to the snowmobile. I hope you have an awesome Family weekend.

Incidentally, a side benefit of requiring registration for the free permit is that is allows some tracking of how many permits were issued and if the users actually do buy permits next year.

You ride on what is usually prime conditions most yrs that weekend and if the trails are top notch betcha it will entice a few to buy a permit for the rest of the season or next

After seeing how our poker run turned out this year...I'd bet a higher number of people would participate on family day weekend, in particular if they don't have to buy a permit to put a sled on the trail for a day of fun. Could be good for clubs
planning an event such as this. You could
capture some of the locals that strictly use their
sled to run out to the ice hut and back home.
More revenue to the club. Or...entice somebody
to buy a permit the following year.
The forest does thier poker run then. Can't compete with them. I was going to go, but dicided it wasn't worth the drive, because of low snow.
