Hello folks, from the Bonfield SC:
Another sledding season is approaching.
The last few months have been a whirlwind for all of us during this pandemic crisis. I trust everyone has come through it safely.
Despite an unexpected, but necessary early closure last year, we had a great riding season in our Club and District 11. Some of the best trail riding in recent years. We experienced unprecedented ridership in our District 11.
Bonfield SC enjoys an envied number of volunteers that groom, maintain equipment, clear trails, signage, lake staking, you name it. Without them, there would simply not be any trails to ride. Tip of the old helmet to volunteers everywhere. It was a real challenge for our volunteer group, yet they came through with flying colors.
Great news for BSC. In an unexpected move, the OFSC has awarded us a new Husky groomer/drag for the upcoming season. A real show of faith in our Club and the trails we provide.
We eagerly await the new groomer. Permit dollars at work.
New this year, permit sales will begin on Sept 1st. 2020. Fees remain the same as last year. Classic is 1999 or older.
Gift Cards are available to take advantage of the early bird prices. Buy permit later when new sled arrives, or for a friend.
In response to the pandemic crisis, the OFSC is offering a one time “Rider Advantage Bonus” this year. Details were emailed to all permit purchasers and are available online at OFSC site.
We will be doing more trail work this fall to ease the burden on our equipment and provide a better ride. Permit dollars at work again.
Please respect the generosity of our Landowners. Without their kindness and consent. Our trail system would collapse. Be respectful, stay on the groomed trails.
Go to https://permits.ofsc.on.ca to purchase your permit. Permit tracking is an additional fee.
Please select Bonfield SC (District 11) as your Club of choice.
To minimize issues, ensure name, address, postal/zip code, Club selection, VIN, etc. are correct.
Please select Bonfield SC as your Club of choice, get a buddy to sign up too. Buy a permit from our Club and head up for some great riding. Ride the Explorer Snow Tour, RAN or RAP tours. Bonfield points of interest, Amable Du Fond River, Boulter View lookout, Pioneer Spring and Devils Canyon. Ride the neighboring Club trails for more interesting sites.
When you ride, please support local businesses as much as possible. The pandemic has hit most businesses hard. Our sport’s support can go a long way to help.

Going to be great to ride the trails in our awesome outdoors.
