It’s been a slow, hard winter for the snowmobile industry. Over the weekend, separate accidents in Lewis County claimed two men, according to the Watertown Daily Times.
Sgt. [Ryan] Lehman said that he did not know whether Lewis County ever had two fatal snowmobile accidents within a 24-hour period before.
With the lack of snow much of the winter, he noted that it has not been a good season for snowmobiling in the county, which is known for the winter sport and trails.
“We’re one of the areas of the state that has marginal snow,” he said.
