SNOW!!Border Rider say signs to change

R epresentatives of the Border Riders snowmobile club stated the obvious Wednesday afternoon when they said, “The trails are open.”

The same day a Sentinel article appeared in which the club’s Elaine Daigle reminded members and non-members alike not to ride because there was not enough snow to protect the terrain – a 12 inch snowfall covered the area in a blanket of white.

Problem solved. Game on.

Now, the problem is going out and flipping all of those little signs over. Daigle said someone will be riding out to do that very soon.

Club members, who also do all of the trail grooming and maintenance will also be going out and flipping over all of the little signs as well.

For those who don’t know, the sign are small placards that hang on two small pegs, the most basic form of changeable sign requiring someone to ride out to each one, stop and roll them over to read ‘Open.’

That sign work is in progress, along with grooming and continued trail work, club members said.

Fortunately for snowmobile riders and fans of snow sports in general, the weather looks like it is going to hold out, remain cold and allow some winter wonderland enjoyment, but the Border Riders ask – the next time the snow cover gets thin, consider waiting for more snow.
