LET IT SNOW!

Please re­mem­ber safety when rid­ing.

Hi ev­ery­one,

I can’t be­lieve it is De­cem­ber and we barely have any snow and the tem­per­a­tures are in the thir­ties and for­ties. So we need to do the snow dance.

-When rid­ing with groups, des­ig­nate a per­son to lead the group and an­other per­son to be at the end of the group.

-In­form the group the route you will be tak­ing. -Make sure you have all the tools, equip­ment and fuel to com­plete the trip, even if you are go­ing for a short ride.

-Re­mem­ber, NEVER pass the lead per­son or any other snow­mo­biler. If the per­son in front of you stops then you stop. -When you are go­ing to stop, pull off to the side of the trail to pre­vent the snow­mo­bile from be­hind you rearend­ing you. -Al­ways be­ware of po­ten­tial haz­ards such as fences, rocks, guide wires, posts, etc.

-When snow­mo­bil­ing on a trail, stay to your right and be pre­pared for the un­ex­pected.

-Night rides are fun, but your vis­i­bil­ity is re­duced, so you need to drive at a speed that will al­low you to stop when you see some­thing that is dan­ger­ous.

-Re­mem­ber what you pack in is what you pack out.

I have been to many dif­fer­ent com­mu­nity func­tions and I al­ways talk about snow­mo­bil­ing. It amazes me how many peo­ple don’t know about our trail sys­tem. So I in­form them of how many miles we take care of and it is all vol­un­teer. I also tell them about the SND web­site so they can get more in­for­ma­tion. We have a lot of new peo­ple com­ing into the state that have snow­mo­biles, but don’t know what we have to of­fer, so we need to in­form them.

I hope to see you on the trail.

Ride Safe!
