    The lack of snow has tempted some snowmobilers to consider riding on ice. Yes, it’s been very cold and many of the lakes and ponds are frozen. but remember, ice is unpredictable. In the name of safety, it is recommended that snowmobilers avoid frozen bodies of water.

     

    For information about ice thickness and ice survival, visit our previous post “Ice is Unpredictable” that also includes a video.

     

    Our friends at VAST, the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers, posted a video that reminds everyone of the possible consequences of unknown ice conditions. Be a Safe Rider, follow all snowmobile ice safety recommendations.

      I have begun using my GPS to mark all of the trails in Otis (Knox Trail Snow Riders trails), and after reading this article, I will begin marking gas, intersections, clubhouse, etc. Has anyone else out there begun doing the same either in Otis or some other part of Mass? I think I will mark the entrances to private trails as well as an overlay so that if you come up on an unmarked intersection you will be able to determine which is the marked trail and which is private.
