SND Board Messages
Check out what our board members have been up to
LET IT SNOW!
Please remember safety when riding.
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.
