A102Q is closed for 2020 Season

Posted on

Unfortunately we have bad news. The A102Q will not be open this season, as we had planned.
We were just advised that the Sno – Voyageurs club in Temiskaming is unable to groom their section of trail due to a 1 lane bridge in town that they stated they are unable to cross with the groomer.
It’s unfortunate for all involved, clubs, businesses & permit holders (me being one of them)
If anything changes we will be sure to advise but you’ll need to plan any trips accordingly.

OPP statement Modified Exhaust

Posted on

Central Region OPP say there’s no place for modified exhausts or excessive noise on Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs’ (OFSC) trails.

“Let’s be courteous to the gracious people that allow us to run on their private property and on the OFSC trails and not run with modified exhausts this year,” Const. Ryan Lehr of the Central Region Safe Team says in a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Removing or modifying any component of a snowmobile is an offence under the Motorized Snow Vehicles Act and could result in a fine of approximately $100.

Let’s keep our trails , not loose them
