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.

If you have any other ques­tions please feel free to call me at 701-328-5357.

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