Snowmobiles reminded of courtesy


With freshly groomed trails across the region, those heading out on snowmobiles are asked to be considerate. Sunset Trail Riders president Bruce McGregor notes there are restrictions for those travelling through town.

"The hours of travel through town are seven in the morning to eleven o'clock at night. That's something that people have to be familiar with because the restrictions on the town corridor are in place to not interrupt peoples lives with the noise," he said.

McGregor also notes that alcohol can not be consumed while snowmobiling.

"I would ask that everyone obeys the by-laws. There's also a zero tolerance for alcohol. We all don't mind having a drink but there is no alcohol allowed on the trails," he said.

Those who are using trails that cross over bodies of water are reminded to be aware of the thickness of the ice, locations of ice ridges and other factors. Trails have been opened up across the region, with most trails in the Sioux Lookout and Dryden areas open to full use. In Kenora, smaller trails have been opened to full use, but many main trails are still classified as limited use.
