Not So Fast, Snowmobilers

Regional | by Mariane McLeod  

Snowmobile trails remain close despite the fresh snow and colder temperatures.

The snow we've had the last two days has a lot of people itching to get on their snowmobiles.

But not so fast.

The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC), says the snow is not yet enough to open any of the 700 kilometres of sled trails in the region.

Ron Wheadon -- the grooming manager with the OFSC -- says the groomers need a full foot of snow to pack in holes and ditches before they can open the trails.

More than six thousand people are registered to take their snowmobiles on the trails in the Mid-Ontario area.
