In spite of the sub-arctic temperatures, many snowmobilers are braving the cold to enjoy the long-awaited white stuff. This past week’s dumping of snow was a welcome sight for those waiting to pull out their sleds. Finally, the groomers are out and prepping the trails.
Allan Sampson is President of the Tri-Lake Trailbusters Snowmobile Club. He says it was definitely time for some snow.
“Everyone likes it and you don’t have to drive somewhere else anymore. You just have to hop on the snowmobile at home and go!”
“It’s good for the club as well. It’s good to get out and do what we’ve all been waiting for.”
Sampson says the Tri-Lake Trailbusters have been working hard to have all their trails freshly groomed for the weekend. The Trailbusters are responsible for some 450 km, from Wawanesa south to the U.S. border south of Killarney, and then west over to Boissevain. Heading east, their trail system covers the area to Belmont, Baldur, Glenora and up to Glenboro.
“It’s ready for everyone to enjoy!” he says. “Just be careful and watch out for other riders.”
