NEWS RELEASE
ONTARIO PROVINCIAL POLICE
*************************
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) wishes to remind riders to take extra care during this portion of pre-snowmobile season.

Trails under the care of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) are currently not open. Volunteers have not had the opportunity to clear trails, groom or assess snow conditions.

Please remember riding on closed OFSC trails may cause damage to the property or cause landowners to revoke consent, closing trails for everyone. Riders who choose to ride on closed OFSC trails may be charged.

Snowmobilers who choose to intentionally skip open water cause unnecessary risk to themselves and to first responders attempting a rescue or recovery. Police wish to remind people, no ice is ever 100 per cent safe and everyone should remain off the ice that will start to form on our waterways.
