If driving before snow removal is completed, motorists should keep to the right of snow piles placed in the center of streets.

Snow also brings snowmobiles, and the City has shared a few safety tips for riders to keep in mind.

  • There are speed limits in place specifically for snowmobiles;
  • Always drive at a speed that will let you stop safely;
  • Be mindful of, and slow down for, other trail users such as hikers, skiers, skaters and dogsleds;
  • Valid snowmobile registration and insurance is required when operating in City Limits;
  • Helmets are mandatory for all snowmobile riders and operators;
  • Remember to dress appropriately and let someone know where you’re going and when you expect to return.
