The Abitibi Canyon Loop Tour: A 400 Series Highway Paved with Fresh Powder
I'm in the fortunate position to have the job all my friends envy. As an action sports photographer, I spend a good chunk of the winter months riding and photographing snowmobiles for Ontario Tourism. We travel to some of the most scenic locations found anywhere in the province (and arguably the country).  After two forgetful seasons, the winter of 2014 struck with a vengeance giving us some of the best snow conditions seen in years.…
Highway 64 Riding
It's no secret that I love riding in Northern Ontario. It's much more than a job for me, it's almost a spiritual connection – the open spaces, the miles of forests, lakes and rivers, the small towns and the big cities of Timmins, Sudbury, New Liskeard and North Bay (the official boundary line that signifies the start of the Northeastern part of Ontario) At only three and a half hours from Toronto, it's also a…

Head North for the Best Ride of the Year
March Break has come and gone, and across Ontario, families have fond memories of a real wintry holiday that some say has been long overdue. Others stayed home indoors; plans perhaps interrupted once again by old man winter and his arctic antics. It has been quite a few years since over 80% of the OFSC's snowmobile trails have been available for exploration this late in the season and, by all indications of the current weather…
Callander Bay Sunset Cruisin'
Located just 3 hours north of Toronto and 3.5 hours west of Ottawa, North Bay is a beautiful city in Northern Ontario, offering quite a few attractions, each with a rich history and story all their own.

It's something to enjoy, savour and delight in. Food.
