Video: Trail breaking – Checking the ice on the lakes
trail breaking with snowmobile and checking the ice on the lakes

There is a lot of preparation that needs to be done for the upcoming dog sledding season. One of them is to open our trail system that we use for our dog sled tours.

To prepare the trails we use snowmobiles and we spend many hours a winter for preparation and maintaining of the trails. The trails go over many lakes and ice is always a risk factor. It’s therefore very important to check the thickness and quality of the ice before going out on a frozen lake.

We like you to be able to take part of our work and lifestyle so we made a video about when we went out on the lakes for the first time this season and how we do to check the ice.

You’re welcome to follow us on our YouTube channel.
