Trail maintenance costly, frustrating

Green Lake Snowmobile Club asks for co-operation from public

To the editor:

The overall objective of the Green Lake Snowmobile Club’s (GLSC) trail grooming/maintenance program is to provide smooth trails that are suitable for all levels of rider experience.

For the last couple weeks, club members and the Job Creation Project staff have been spending a significant amount of time and money in clearing and preparing the trails for all snowmobilers’ enjoyment and safety this snowmobile season.

Several of the trails have already been groomed to lay down a solid base as we wait for more snow.

Some people with all terrain vehicles (ATVs) are still trying to use some of these trails that we have already cleared and groomed. The result is there are deep ruts and rocks strewn across the trail.

This is very costly and frustrating for all those who volunteer their time to maintain the trails.

We are asking everyone around the lake to talk to their neighbours or anyone they see heading out on the trails with ATVs this time of year to please stay off the trails for the snowmobile season.

This just a friendly reminder that ATVs and utility task vehicles (AUVs) or any wheeled vehicle “should not” be on the snowmobile trails after we have received our first significant snowfall of the season – in general between Dec. 1 to March 31.

We need everyone to respect the trail system and be courteous to each other.

Thanks in advance for everyone’s support.
