Before fall colors give way to winter white around Door and Kewaunee counties, those looking to take to the snowmobile trails need to get their safety certificate. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reminds residents born January 1st, 1985 and after that, they need to obtain a snowmobile safety certificate, which is now being offered through online classes. DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says there are no age exceptions.
The online snowmobile safety course only costs $10. Dean Simonar, owner of Simonar Sports Incorporated, in Luxemburg, says it's well worth the price.
Information on the snowmobile safety online or in-person course can be found at dnr.wisconsin.gov/Education/OutdoorSkills/safetyEducation.
