Those without a snowmobile can find out where to rent a sled and even book a guided tour across some of the most spectacular terrain in Ontario. The OFSC Go Snowmobiling Show is the only Toronto show where snowmobilers may purchase the 2008 Ontario Snowmobile Trail Permit .
The Lucas Oil Sled Test Track will feature demo rides on new 2008 Yamaha snowmobiles. The sleds are slightly modified to run on pavement, so riders will get to experience the thrill of snowmobiling without the snow.
In the Open Trail Theatre , the OFSC will host a series of leading edge seminars and presentations, plus a fast-paced fashion show.
* The Ice, Fire and Fashion Show is an exciting and entertaining showcase of 2008 snowmobile gear and apparel.
* The ICEMAN Cometh. John Blaicher, one of Canada’s leading water and snowmobile safety experts, will jump into a giant tub filled with 750 lbs of ice and 250 gallons of water. John will take the plunge to demonstrate how to rescue yourself or others from a sudden immersion in frigid water.
* Go Snowmobiling 101 will focus on need-to-know information to get started in snowmobiling, including rules and regulations, where to rent, where to ride, how to dress and who to call.
* Traveling Light is a timely seminar conducted by the OFSC with information for snowmobilers on how to minimize their impact on the environment.
* Keeping Your Precious Cargo Right Side Up when Towing a Trailer is a not-to-miss session that addresses tire safety, the pre-departure safety checklist, and how to select and hook up a tow vehicle.
* Ken Avann of the Canadian Snowcross Racing Association (CSRA) will share with snowmobilers The Right Time and Right Place to Race!
