A plea to all snowmachiners

It is that time of year again, for the marathon cross-country ski trail to grace our lands, and once again I appeal to snowmachine operators near and far, who also like to play in the area, to please respect the groomed ski trails, and private property.

I refer specifically to the East Skyline and Ohlson Mountain Roads area. I realize those riding north along the section line have to cross those trails. As you so thoughtfully did last year, we ask again, just cross it slowly, at a 90 degree angle, so as to disturb as little as possible.

Sadly, there has been snowmachine damage to some of the existing ski trails where thoughtless riders drove down the trail and tore it up. Again, we ask, please respect the groomed ski trails. There is surely sufficient snow this year, to accommodate all snow enthusiasts.

To my neighbors, my sincere thanks that you continue to respect my wishes about the trails, etc.

Thank you,

Milli Martin
