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. As well, moving currents can cause ice breakup rapidly and changing conditions must be taken into consideration.
