|Trail & Snow Report|
I put on 40+ miles on Saturday (1/26) right here in town, I had to get out no matter how bad it was.
Surprise!!!!! They were better than I would have bet. I'm not saying they were what we would all like to ride on a daily basis, but they were pretty good.
There is barely enough snow to cover the rocks and stumps, but John and Larry had things pretty well flattened before our deep freeze, and I think it paid dividends...You can't blast down the trails, and that's not a bad thing, because we want everyone to enjoy and stay safe, but there was some good riding to do.
I would like to have spent more time out and even ventured north or west or even south, but I had already committed to doing something else, not expecting it to be as good as it was. Now please don't misinterpret my report, there are other areas that only a foot of snow will help make better; i.e. some of the brooks, and road spurs and of course some of the areas where the sun sees all day, but as I said earlier, it was not bad, not bad at all.
P.S. it's starting to snow right now
|Snowmobile Safety Course|
Snowmobile club treasurer Laurie Bruce conducted her yearly snowmobile safety class on January 17-19, 2013. There was a nice size class and everyone passed. Thanks to all whom voluntereed.
|Operating Snowmobiles in NYS|
We often field the question "Who can operate a snowmobile legally in NYS?"
New York State Office of Parks and Recreation website states that "Youth ages 14 through 17 years old may operate a snowmobile, on lands upon which snowmobiling is allowed, without adult or other supervision if they have completed a snowmobile safety training course recognized by the State of New York. If youth ages 14 through 17 years have not completed the training course, they may operate a snowmobile if accompanied by (within 500 feet of) a person who is at least 18 years of age.
Youth ages 10 through 13 may operate a snowmobile, on lands upon which snowmobiling is allowed, if they have completed a snowmobile safety training course recognized by the State of New York and are accompanied by (within 500 feet of) a person who is at least 18 years of age.
Children less than 10 years old or less than age 14 without a safety certificate may operate a snowmobile only on lands owned or leased by their parent or guardian."
Visit the NYSSA website for a detailed reference to the New York State Laws pertaining to or effecting snowmobiles, including OPRHP Law § 25.19, Operation by youthful operators.
