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 snowfalls throughout February dumped some white gold all over the trails in the North, and the polar vortex 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.
