Can't get the trail condition info you need?Jan 14/04
You may be frustrated sitting at home watching it snow and wondering why you
can't find somewhere reporting trail conditions. The problem is that no
Snowmobile Club wants to report to the whole world that they might be the only
place to ride. Thousands of snowmobilers will jump into the trucks and head to
those trails. The club can't handle the traffic, the trails get destroyed and no
one is happy. You best alternative is to back up a few years, do things the old
way. Make some friends that you can call on for reliable local conditions in all
areas you might want to travel too. Most Snowmobile Dealers or Gasoline stops on
the trails are happy to give you the straight goods on their own area, but
remember they only know about their immediate area. Hotels on the other hand
might tell you things are good when they are not. This happens for 2 reasons,
1st - many of the staff at Hotels don't have any idea, they don't ride
themselves, or 2nd - they have been given misleading info from management that
just wants to fill their vacant rooms.
