The first major snow fall has arrived. And for Dean Kannenberg, that means getting to work before he gets to go out and play.
"We're getting the trails ready to open up," Kannenberg said. "We're grooming and finishing up the final signing and brushing. We're packing snow and filling in the cricks and getting everything safe for people to ride."
We spent a lot of time for the prep work. People don't realize what's out there on these trails. There's a lot of work to be done to make them safe. The terrain on these trails is absolutely terrible, but once we go through with the groomers, it makes them safe and for safe operation on your sled.
It's not the hard work or time that bothers Dean. He says that the reward is all worth the price he pays.
"One thing I like is when I'm out on my snowmobile and I see families out and it's a family sport, and I just love seeing families that take their kids out and spending that quality family time together," Kannenberg said.
"If you're chomping at the bit to get out and hits the trails.. practice patience.. we're almost there."
