Beginning Friday February 13th, till Sunday February 15th, 2015, snowmobile visitors to New Brunswick can acquire a “Special Free Permit”, to ride any of the NBFSC's 7000 plus kilometers of trails, for these three days. The “free” Weekend is only available to snowmobile tourists and visitors from Nova Scotia, PEI, Quebec, Ontario or the New England States, not residents of New Brunswick.
While the cost of the normal, $80.00, 3-Day Trail Permit is being waived for this weekend, all snowmobilers participating must display the free NBFSC Trail permit on the windshield of their snowmobile during these three days.
This “Special Free Permit” can be printed off the website after filling in a very brief registration form at www.nbfsc.com .
The free3-Day Trail Permits are only available from the Day Trail Permits are only available from the NBFSC Website; they are not available at any other location are not available at any other location in New Brunswick.
New Brunswick's Off Road Vehicle Enforcement teams will be participating all weekend also. Everyone with a “Special Free Permit” displayed will be waived through any check points and welcomed on all trails however other requirements of the Off Road vehicle Act will still be enforced. Therefore while you can acquire a free Trail Permit, all snowmobiles and snowmobilers on NBFSC trails are still required, under the Off Road Vehicle Act, to carry personal PLPD insurance ($200,000.00 minimum) and have a current 2015 snowmobile registration from your home Province or State for your ride.
We have no doubt that many of the regular and popular pit stops, hotels and lodges will fill up quickly so plan to reserve your favorite or new favorite place as soon as possible.
