Good Evening, yes an operator of a snowmobile can be charged for operating a snowmobile on an OFSC prescribed trail without a valid trail permit and the fine can be up to $1000. This is in accordance with the Ontario Motorized Snow Vehicles Act, section 2.1.

The only exclusion is if the operator is on a portion of prescribed trail on their own land.

If the OFSC learns that someone is operating without a permit, they can have the operator charged. Typically, it is the OPP who police the trails and enforce the Act.

Please let me know if you require anything further.
