Welcome to Nova Scotia!
Visiting snowmobilers require a valid SANS trail permit to access our 5,000 kilometer trail system.
Trail permits are available from our Member Snowmobile Clubs and various snowmobile service providers and businesses throughout NS. Please see individual club websites for information on which businesses sell trail permits.
Trail users are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Nova Scotia Off-Highway Vehicle Act to avoid an unwanted interruption from an enforcement official or a SANS Trail Warden. The SANS and our 21 regional snowmobile clubs heavily endorse Zero Tolerance in regards to riding while impaired. This behaviour will not be tolerated. Please take the Zero Tolerance pledge "Zero Tolerance I say, 'til I'm Done for the Day! Help us keep our trails safe and enjoy another day.
