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.

Welcome to the Collingwood & Blue Mountains area. Here you will find all of the tools you need for a day on the trails.  Collingwood may seem small town but we have just as many rules to keep you safe on the trails and the surrounding road ways.

 

If you are lodging in the area, before you venture out from one of our staging areas be sure to familiarize yourself with our town by-laws.  There are certain Highways and Streets that are absolutely zero access for snowmobiles, and pay attention to the signs as some of our trail system is off limits for any motorized vehicle. 

 

We are a member of the OFSC so a valid OFSC permit along with a vehicle permit , current year licence sticker and Insurance are all mandatory to ride the trails.  If you are from outside Ontario or not a regular trail rider you may purchase a multi day pass directly from the OFSC web site.

 

Drivers 16 and over may operate asnowmobile on trails and highways where legally permitted. They must hold a valid Ontario driver's licence, including a G1, G2, M1,or M2 , or a Snow Vehicle Operator's Licence.

 

Children 12 -16 years  must have proof of taking the OFSC approved driver training course

 

Most of all have fun and be safe

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

We are fortunate to be able to supply 2 staging areas in Collingwood

Familiarize yourself with the local by-laws for on street rinding as well as what routes are permissible for accessing the local trail system

We hope you find our site useful and look forward to seeing you on our trails.  BMSD is just one of 230 clubs across Ontario and we encourage you to explore everything Ontario and this great sport has to offer
