While some people might not be too excited to see the snow falling in early November, those with snowmobiles are hoping it’s a sign of things to come.
“All snow is great to see in southern Saskatchewan,” said Darren McCulloch, a manager at Mercury motorsport dealership in Moose Jaw.
“After a few years of not having enough to go sledding, this is a good start.”
Snow has been falling in Regina and southern part of the province steady since Nov. 1, with five to ten centimetres – or two to four inches – of snow expected Saturday.
While it’s definitely a foundation, McCulloch noted fields with around eight to 10 inches of snow on them are ideal for sledding – with fresh powder making for the prime conditions.
McCulloch reminded people heading out on the trails that obstacles such as fallen trees can be hidden by the snow.
