Winter will be Arriving Soon!
As Bigwin becomes more and more populated during the winter season, we want to send out a few reminders to make it a safe and happy place for everyone during the snowy months.
We would like people to refrain from using any golf course turf for sliding or skiing. At this time of year packing snow on the surface creates a dense icy layer that does not allow the grass to breathe. This will show up as dead or severely damaged grass
As inviting as the 6th and 18th tees appear please respect the golf club and its membership and refrain from use of these areas during the winter period
The ring road and airstrip are fair game for winter fun. Be aware of any other vehicles that may be using these areas
Please use extreme caution before venturing on to the ice when it forms. It is always a good idea to check with local experts, such as marina or fish hut operators about the ice conditions. Always be safe and don't put yourself at risk.
Please make any winter guests you may entertain aware of these precautions.
We would like to clarify the rules and regulations regarding the use of the common paths and trails on the island during the winter months.
While the use of snowmobiles is not permitted under your property license agreement, we recognize that responsible use of snowmobiles by our owners to access their properties is reasonable seasonal use. We simply ask that you send us an email to email@example.com with the make and model of your snowmobile and the license #, along with proof of insurance; we appreciate your cooperation with this.
It is important to be aware that these are multi use trails and motorized vehicles must always yield to pedestrians. We also ask that posted speed limits be obeyed and that the trail permit rules outlined by the OFSC and Provincial Legislation be observed. Remember these trails are for the exclusive use of Bigwin Island Association Owners and we appreciate any assistance in reporting trespassers or people that drive off the trails.
