RUTLAND, Vt. (WCAX) – The Green Mountain National Forest is reminding snowmobilers to put safety first as riders prepare to hit the trails on Friday.

Officials remind riders to pay attention at all the gates and to obey signage and closed trails.

They say to use extra caution early in the season, as trees may be weak due to the accumulation of snowfall.

Weather permitting, the season is set to kick off on Friday, December 16, and run until April 15.

Officials say all snowmobilers must be registered, have insurance, and purchase a VAST Trails Maintenance Assessment decal.

They encourage people to pack a flashlight, cell phone, food, and warm clothes in case of an emergency.
