Local snowmobilers are reporting their machines are getting stuck in slush buildups on lakes and shorelines. The heavy snowfall we have had this winter is affecting ice conditions resulting in the build up of slush. One couple reported they were stranded for around 24 hours at Kisseynew Lake after their snowmobile became bogged down in slush. Fortunately they were prepared for an emergency and kept safe until assistance arrived.
You are reminded to watch for slush when snowmobiling on our lakes and carry the proper supplies you will need in case you end up in an emergency situation.
