Throughout the season, tens of thousands of Ontario snowmobilers visit the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide. So, starting this season, the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs has launched a new platform to accommodate enhanced features and improve rider experience. It’s a work in progress and new developments will happen incrementally, but one immediate benefit is that snowmobilers save $4 by not having to download an app anymore. That’s because the mobile-friendly Interactive Trail Guide can be opened and used on a smartphone as-is.
Province-Wide Reference Tool
The OFSC Interactive Trail Guide is Ontario's only province-wide snowmobile trail reference tool. This one-stop source provides real time trail status and trail network information on trail accessible services, fuel, and other points of interest. It provides two primary functions that are very beneficial to snowmobilers: “Trail Status” and “Trail Network.” For best results, use Edge, Google Chrome, or Firefox.
Snowmobilers need to be aware that the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide is the only authorized source to get the most recent Trail Network data, as provided by OFSC member clubs through their districts. For GPS devices only, the OFSC provides this data to its official and only partner in this technology, Trak Maps. So beware of any other 3rd party apps that may claim to show OFSC Prescribed Trails, because they are likely to be incomplete or not up to date. And frankly, not much better than paper trail guides for keeping you current and informed.
Snowmobilers also need to be aware that the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide is the only authorized province-wide reference source for the very important Trail Status information that assists in your decision about where and when to ride legally. This data is not provided or available to any third party. For both current Trail Network and Trail Status, the OFSC recommends that you be sure to check the Interactive Trail Guide before accessing any OFSC snowmobile trail.
