MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Snowmobile season is officially underway, and trails are in great shape after the weekend snow storm.
The Marquette County Sheriff's Office is urging caution though, so everyone can have a safe season.
The main thing to be aware of when snowmobiling is your speed. Maintain a safe, easy to handle speed at all times, as weather and trail conditions can change in an instant.
“Especially on the weekends. There's a lot more people out. You'll see a lot more families out and so it's just best to slow down,” said Marquette County Sheriff, Greg Zyburt.
Drinking and driving a snowmobile is a misdemeanor. The sheriff's office asks that you follow the law and limit your consumption to below the legal limit for driving any vehicle.
