ABOUT US

Comprising Simcoe County and what is historically known as "Huronia", OFSC District 8 is consistently blessed with an abundance of lake effect snow due to its close proximity to Georgian Bay. This popular winter playground located west of Lake Simcoe encompasses breathtaking outlooks of the picturesque Niagara Escarpment and connects many well serviced rural and lakeshore communities with its over 1300km of scenic trails.

winter's coming

Welcome to the Blue Mountain Snowdrifters Snowmobile Club Website. Our club is part of the OFSC, and we are a member of M.O.S.T. within District #8.

 

Our Club is centralized in the Georgian Bay Area in Southern Ontario.. Our club is 100% volunteer driven, made up of many volunteers like youself. Trails grooming and maintainance are funded through permit dollars. We encourage all riders to buy where they ride.

With your permit dollars, you get:

• over 100 km of clearly signed, groomed and patrolled trails

• a safe family snowmobiling experience

• trail variety - hills, forests, twists and turns, fields, rolling hills, and of course, snowdrifts! Of course this is all thanks to our generous landowners. Be respectful, and stay on the trail or stay home.

• natures best scenic view of Georgian Bay, including a must-see lookout point over Devil's Glen Ski Resort overlooking the magnificient Georgian Area!

• trail access to food, fuel, repairs, and accommodations in the towns of Collingwood, Signhampton, Stayner and neighbouring towns such as Feversham, Dundalk, Markdale, Thornbury, Meaford, Wasaga Beach, Creemore and New Lowell.

Before heading to the trails take the time and follow these simple steps 
TRAIL STATUS

Know before you go.  Check the trail staus to be sure the trails are open.  Red means closed.  Although it may appear there is enough snow for sledding.  We respect the private property owners who are gracious enough to allow us access to their land.  Snow may not be the only reason a trail is closed

Driver Documents

 

Make sure you have a valid in year trail permit.  The trails are patroled by the OPP and they will stop you to check that you have a trail permit, vehicle ownership, drivers licence and insurance. The fines for not having any one of these can be costly, and lastly watch your speed.
