“Everyone irritates someone,” he said, “but I’m hoping we can get along.”

Snowmobiler Terry Hutchinson said neighbors shouldn’t blame enforcement on the enforcers but on the laws “that we all have to follow, and unfortunately the law says no non-motorized traffic on snowmobile trails, including horses, from Dec. 1 to April 1. We are taxpayers like everyone else and have the right to use public lands and parks.”

He and law enforcement officials alike urged neighbors to use a tip line — 952-440-1003 — to report any abuse. “We will chase snowmobilers right to their house,” he said.

Themig asked the crowd to “please follow the rules until we change them, OK? We will move quickly on this. The snow may go fast and the issue goes away, but the best long-term solution is still an important question.”
