The Rules
Step 1: Your Mission

Step 2: The Rules
1. You will be coming to Canada.
2. You will need a Passport to enter and leave Canada.
3. Your sled must be licensed and insured.
4. You must have an OFSC Trail Permit to ride the trails to access the backcountry riding areas.
5. Longtrack, freeride or powder sleds are highly recommended.

10. Keep it a secret.
Step 3:
Learn the Slang
Boondocking verb The opposite of trail riding. To go where no one else has been.

Longtracker noun A local who rides their snowmobile at the first sign of frost. Knows every square inch of terrain and shares them with ‘out-a-towners’ for bribes of food and drink.

Toque noun A highly practical piece of warm fabric Canadians use to cover one’s head. Usually worn from September to May and only outdone by the infamous “long john".

Freeriding verb A younger cousin to boondocking with a focus on wide open spaces covered in a thorough puking of pow.
Wawa noun A sound that will haunt you all summer long and tempt the very core of your soul to leave the rules behind.
Step 4: The Location
1. Travel to the town of Wawa, Ontario.
2.

It is recommended you stay in Wawa and book your accommodation in advance. Sled friendly accommodations can be found here.
