Snowmobilers Advised to Use Caution in Icy Trails

Posted: Updated:

With the fluctuating temperatures this week, the roads have been a mess to drive on.

Despite the ice, snowmobilers say the trails are great right now.

Groomers say the warmer weather actually helps them to clean up the trail. When the ice softens, it makes it easier to get rid of the slush. Now that it has iced over, there is a good base. Snowmobilers say all we need is a little cold weather and some snow to coat the icy trails.

With the trails being icy, rental shops and snowmobile clubs advice riders to use caution.

They say be mindful of the ice, and watch when you hit curbs and turn.
