Snowmobiling on the Trails this Winter

Want to try something new this winter? Find out where the Ontario trails are and give snowmobiling a try!

While Ontario Cottage Rentals with a 2-night minimum may not be ideal for avid snowmobilers, families looking to bring their kids and introduce them to the trails or relax in front of a toasty warm fire while a few family members are on their sled for a day or two, may have better luck if they get a vacation out of the deal!

Whether you’re bringing your own snowmobiles or renting them, Ontario Cottage Rentals offer a great home base to try out this family-fun activity.

CLRM has several properties in our inventory that have attracted snowmobilers in the past and are sure to do so again this winter! So, find out where the trails are and get on the sled!

Please remember, when planning to snowmobile at one of our properties, to let us know and include the snowmobiles on your list of vehicles.

Why Do You Need to Know This?

  • We need to confirm there is enough parking at the property for all cars, trucks as well as trailers and the snowmobiles themselves.
  • Some properties are very close to groomed trails, while others are a bit further away. We can make help make recommendations based on your needs.
  • Some cottage roads ban the use of snowmobiles/ATVs, etc. Therefore, this is important to know when you’re booking a cottage very close to the trails, but still need to tow the sleds to the trail itself.

If you’re hoping to introduce family or friends to the sport, please remember to pack all the required safety equipment or arrange rentals prior to heading up to the cottage. Although there are places to rent both snowmobiles and safety equipment, they are far and few between, so it’s best to arrange this before or as soon as you book your cottage rental.

Top 5 Snowmobile Tips:

  1. Purchase your OFSC Trail Permit before you jump on your sled.
  2. Must have either a valid driver’s license or a motorized snow vehicle operator’s license.
  3. Make sure the snowmobile is registered with the Ministry of Transportation and has proper insurance.
  4. Make sure you have all safety equipment packed or on hold for rental before you head up to the cottage.
  5. If you want to rent a snowmobile to give it a try, we have a few links at the bottom of the page for companies that offer rentals.
