Trail rules for snowmobilers in extreme cold

The opening of all snowmobile trails in Door and Kewaunee counties is drawing snowmobilers despite the extreme cold.  While trails were partially opened last Wednesday,  many people brought their machines out in force over the weekend.  John Chadeck, a member of the Door Drifters Snowmobile Club says that has continued even as wind chills have dropped into the minus-40 degree range.  He urges those venturing out on the trails in the cold to follow some simple rules.



Chadeck also recommends snowmobilers stay on the trails, watch the speeds, keep water for hydration and a cellphone to call for help if you become stranded on a trail.
