While we may see some snow melting today due to near zero temperatures, we haven't seen the last of it here in West Central Saskatchewan. 

In fact, it's around that time of year again when the snowmobiles are getting ready to make their first appearance of the season. 

There are some things to keep in mind for residents who plan on riding their snowmobiles in Kindersley. Town administration are reminding the public to remember the bylaws associated with snowmobiles in town.

Operators of a snowmobile are permitted to ride on any highway or portion of a highway within the corporate limits of the town for the sole purpose of crossing a highway or transporting to a ride area outside said limits. Though snowmobile operators are asked to take the most practical, direct, and safest route for entry and exit to their riding destination.

This arrangment excludes the Highway 7 portion between 15th Street East and Ditson Drive, as residents are not allowed to drive across or in the ditches of this area.

Riders must also remember, not to operate a snowmobile at a speed greater than 20 kilometres per-hour on a highway within the corporate limits of Kindersley.

Some other points riders should remember from the bylaw include:

  • Operating a snowmobile only between the hours of 7:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M.
  • Driving is not permitted on or across Main Street or in any public place regardless of whether it has been indicated by a sign prohibiting the operation of a snowmobile.
  • Residents are permitted to operate a snowmobile on a highway during an emergency when all other vehicular traffic is unable to travel said highway due to traffic or snow conditions.

Those who exceed the speed limit or commit any other offense could face a penalty of $65.00.
