The Rides of March

Rides of March, Northeastern Ontario

Don't Put Your Sled Away - This Season is Just Getting Started

With record snowfall, an early deep freeze, and towns that know how to make the most of winter, the best riding of the season is March!

Have you ever had such a good time doing something, that you never want it to end? That's what snowmobiling in Northeastern Ontario is all about—a great time that just keeps going and going.

After another massive snow storm at the end of February dumped some white gold all over the trails in the North, and a polar vortex at the start of winter froze everything deep and solid, Northeastern Ontario is poised for the best March sledding in the province.

So if you've lamented the end of winter, and thought about fogging your engine and getting out your sled cover? THINK AGAIN. The Rides of March are upon us, and they reward those who make the four- or five-hour drive to the borders of this vast sledding playground.

Northeastern Ontario has hundreds of miles of connected trails, often billing itself as the #1 snowmobile destination in the world. There's almost always snow throughout the season. 

Special thanks to all the volunteers of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs that create the world's best snowmobiling!
