New Grooming Education Materials Available
Two new grooming education resources were recently developed by the American Council of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA) and Trails Work Consulting to help grooming managers and groomer operators be more adaptive to changing snowmobile trail grooming needs. According to Trails Work Consulting’s owner Kim Raap, “Snowmobile trail grooming helps provide an improved level of access for snowmobile riders. But if done poorly or inconsistently, it can create safety issues. We look for these new materials to help grooming managers and individual groomer operators provide the right level of service and also hopefully become more efficient and effective.” The new resources are available at www.snowmobileinfo.org/snowmobiling-access-resources.
