    President Glenn Green says there are patches which had flooding early in the morning with a couple of feet of water in the trail but by Sunday evening it had drained off.

    Averaging 50 mm of rain over the weekend, snowmobile trails along the west coast have taken a hit. Members of the Western Sno’ Riders group met last night to talk about areas that need repair or attention. President Glenn Green says there are patches which had flooding early in the morning with a couple of feet of water in the trail but by Sunday evening it had drained off. He says the trails are mostly intact, and members have been out scouting the trails for areas of concern and posting pictures to their facebook page. Green says the biggest obstacle at this point is repairs from this weekend and getting enough snow. He says trails will be slippery for the next couple of days. Green says snowmobilers should stay on groomed trails and avoid the back country trails. He says for the most up to date information and conditions, check out the Western Sno Riders facebook page.
