Snowmobiling Safety Warning

Regional | by Jill Young  

Snowmobilers are being warned to stay off the closed OFSC trails, and off partially frozen waterways

The OPP and Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs are warning snowmobilers about staying safe over the holidays.

Snowmobilers are being warned to stay off the closed OFSC trails, and off partially frozen waterways as they aren't safe enough to travel on.    

The OPP responded to its first snowmobile fatality of the season earlier this month after a man lost control of his snowmobile. 

Excessive speed, driving too fast for the conditions losing control and alcohol are among the top contributing factors in OPP-investigated snowmobile fatalities every season.

Snowmobilers are reminded to check the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide for real-time availability of trail information over the holidays and throughout the season.
