The OFSC's web site is the official site for OFSC trail status. The North Of Superior Snowmobile Association (N.O.S.S.A.) web site also has the current OFSC District 16 trail status. These are the only sites that can be trusted to be accurate and up to date. Treat all other sources of information (faxes, other web sites, etc.) as being suspicious. If there are questions about trail status, call N.O.S.S.A. at 1-800-526-7522.
Wherever possible, the OFSC's TOP Trails are land routes with few ice crossings, but occasionally terrain and geography dictate that the trail crosses a frozen body of water. When it is necessary to ride on ice, always follow the marked trail and stay on the machine-packed surface. Do not stop on ice or wander off the trail. Remember that ice conditions are susceptible to temperature fluctuations during the winter that can weaken ice. Always ask before riding on unfamiliar ice or where there is no obvious main trail. Wearing a buoyant snowmobile suit is highly recommended. If you don't know, don't go. You are crossing at your own risk.
