Snowmobile season is almost here and the OPP wants you to be prepared.

Before you even hit the road to head to your favourite Muskoka snowmobile trail, police say your trailer needs to be ready for the journey. OPP Sergeant Steven Mihills says if you’re just breaking out your trailer for the first time, you need to make sure everything is working properly.

Mihills says you also need to make sure your backlights and turn signals are working properly.

The MyMuskokaNow newsroom will keep you updated on when trails start opening across Muskoka.
