“Research by the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association has shown that the biggest deterrent to getting started in snowmobiling is not being able try it first,” said OFSC GO Snowmobiling spokesperson, John Blaicher. “Our major objective and the primary benefit of the
Give It a Try Tour is to make that all-important first taste affordable, so I invite anyone that is interested to visit the tour Web site at tryriding.com.”
OFSC Go Snowmobiling Give It A Try Tour stops will involve local media, snowmobile clubs and sled dealers. Following pre-ride safety instruction and practical sled orientation, participants will go on their free ride in a controlled, supervised setting, wearing Choko snowmobile suits and helmets, and Baffin boots. Sledder’s Choice Group Insurance Program is providing ride insurance.
“The OFSC Go Snowmobiling Give It A Try Tour is a pilot project supported by many industry players who recognize the importance of welcoming new riders,” concluded Blaicher. “Our intention is to expand the tour in coming years.” GO Snowmobiling promotes the lifestyle, experience and fun that trail riding offers Ontarians every winter. Its purpose is to grow snowmobiling by attracting new participants, persuading former riders to return, encouraging casual snowmobilers to ride more — and by urging everybody to do their sledding here in Ontario.”
The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is dedicated to providing strong leadership and support to member clubs and volunteers, to establishing and maintaining quality snowmobile trails which are used in a safe and environmentally responsible manner, and to furthering the enjoyment of organized snowmobiling.
