This week is Get Ready to go Snowmobiling Week in Ontario. The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs has launched this week to raise awareness that now is the time to get your sled ready. Craig Nicholson, spokesperson for the OFSC, says this is the week to get your gear ready to go.

Nicholson says the trails aren’t open yet because of safety issues.

Nicholson says that packed base is what will protect sledders from any uneven or rough terrain.

This is also the last week to buy a discounted permit. To buy the permit, and see what trails will be available in Timmins, go to the OFSC Website
