A sound that's become nearly foreign - and forgotten - was heard on area trails this weekend.

Snowmobiles roared to life, the white stuff sending groomers out to ready trails for travel.


The trails are in good shape, Lou Eischens of the Forest Riders said Monday, although the Department of Natural Resources was urging caution on lakes.

Husband Tim Eischens was aboard the groomer, the club sending two machines out to maintain 300 miles of trails.
