This week is Snowmobile Safety Week in Ontario and local Snowmobile Clubs are urging all sledders to do their part to maintain safety on and off the trails.
Obey Limits and Laws on the Trails
Do Not Ride Beyond Your Ability
Stay on the Trail
Never Ride Intoxicated
Know your route
Know your sled
Don’t go alone
Always carry a fully charged phone
Dress appropriately, and,
Take a snowmobile safety course
The OPP are also reminding riders to avoid the use of loud exhaust pipes and not to trespass on private property – these two issues are illegal and are causing us to lose access to trails across our region.
The snowmobile season is off to an amazing start – in fact, the best in several years. We want to keep it that way. Please help us to get the message out that safety is first and foremost.
