Public Service Announcement - Ice Safety

November 25, 2021


To All Snowmobilers

Snoman (Snowmobilers of Manitoba) Inc. would like to notify snowmobilers throughout the province that ice thickness must be at least 5 inches of clear hard ice to hold a snowmobile. This early in the season that is not the case, and we urge riders to stay well clear of waterways, both rivers and lakes. Thin ice is often covered by snow which produces weak spots due to its insulating effect.

Stay safe by checking ice conditions prior to any over frozen water travel. Moving currents can cause ice breakup rapidly and changing conditions must be taken into consideration.
