JANICE MCWILLIAM

Snowmobiling has always been a big part of my life – I can remember my grandpa’s 1st snowmobile was a 1972 Bombardier Olympic – it was a tank! I would be riding around on it with my brother when I was 8 yrs old back in Muskoka, Ontario. At that time in Ontario, when you turned 13 yrs old, you could do a 2 day course to get your snowmobile license so that you were legal to make road and railway crossing. So my friends and I did the weekend course together and it was our 1st taste of freedom! Riding to school on snowy weekdays and on the weekends hitting the trails to go to different restaurants for french fries! Snowmobile Rallies, Poker Runs and Puddle Jump competitions! So much fun!
