The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs and BITEHARDER Announce Continued Commitment to Promoting Snowmobile Safety
BITEHARDER is once again proud to be partnering with the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) to promote snowmobile safety through better traction and handling performance. OFSC is committed to promoting safe snowmobiling, with the aim of reducing the number of snowmobile related accidents. At BITEHARDER we know that having sharper runners and studs are critical to safety and performance in all conditions.
As part of our ongoing relationship, BITEHARDER will continue to donate back 10% of all sales that come through our website store. Ontario snowmobilers are asked to enter promotion code “OFSC” at checkout. These funds go directly to help offset the growing cost of maintaining the pristine trails Ontario riders have come to expect.
Ontario is one of Canada’s premier snowmobiling destinations with one of the longest networks of recreational trails in the world. The OFSC along with its member organizations (snowmobile clubs) manage approximately 32,000km of the best quality trails, loops and passages across all parts of Ontario. For the coming season the OFSC is celebrating its 50th Anniversary serving the snowmobiling community in the Province of Ontario. During Ontario Trails Week, the Province of Ontario announced that the OFSC’s Trans Ontario Provincial (TOP) Trails were being honored as “Ontario Trails of Distinction” (OTD). The OTD is designed to showcase and celebrate distinctive trails in the province. “This worthy recognition is a credit to the collective efforts of our clubs and volunteers who can be justly proud of delivering this amazing trail product over the past 50 years,” said OFSC Executive Director Paul Shaughnessy.
The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club districts have committed to the highest possible consistency and quality with priority grooming for their Snow Tour trails. One such tour, known as the granddaddy of sled tours, the popular 708km Round Algonquin Park (RAP) Tour, circumnavigates the world-renowned Algonquin Park with a multi-day adventure that is a must-do tour for trail riders in Ontario. The upcoming season will also showcase 36 provincially promoted snow tours ranging from half day, full day and multi-day experiences that are branded and signed for easy planning and navigation
The OFSC currently has 16 districts, which will be reorganized to 12 districts over the next 3 years. This will promote a new regional approach for organized snowmobiling in Ontario. In some cases, new district boundaries will result in certain clubs being reassigned to other districts so that the number of clubs and kilometers of trails in each is more comparable. To ensure snowmobiling safety, look out for new signs and trail guides.
“We’re pleased to welcome BITEHARDER to the OFSC Rider Advantage program for a second consecutive season and encourage Ontario snowmobilers to take advantage of these special offers all year long!” Lisa Stackhouse, Manager Participation & Partnership Development for the OFSC.
At BITEHARDER, our goal is to help you have the best snowmobile experience possible every time you head out on the trail. Help support the OFSC with BITEHARDER Tools and get the best safety and performance your snowmobile has to offer. For more information visit BITEHARDER at www.biteharder.com
