Snow baby snow!!
Here is hoping for a great snow season!! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! You know what comes after Thanksgiving? That is right, snowmobile season! Trails open Dec. 1 but remember that they need a MINIMUM of 4 inches of groomed snow to drive on the trail.
Snowmobile Safety Certification courses are going strong this winter. A HUGE thanks to all the clubs and associations who have helped Tari to get these classes scheduled so far! Remember, anyone 12 and older is required to have either a snowmobile safety certification card or a valid drivers’ license to operate a snowmobile on any public lands including the state snowmobile trails.
I have listed some snowmobile tips to get you ready for the season:
• Make sure your snowmobile is in tip top running condition. You don’t want to start out the season with a snowmobile that stops running when you are out on the trail. Make sure you are starting out with fresh spark plugs, fuel and check your belt for any cracks or wear. Also, double check your spare plugs and belt!
• Every snowmobile should be packed with a small winter survival kit. These can come in extremely helpful if you do become stranded.
• Also, make sure your helmet is ready to go. Make sure there are no cracks or fatigue in the helmet. If there is, you need to get it replaced. Also, a helmet should always fit you snug or “just right”. Remember, anyone under the age of 18 is required to wear a DOT approved helmet.

Be safe and I look forward to seeing you on the trail!!
