Folks who want to learn how to safely operate a snowmobile will have the opportunity to do so for free.  The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with the Washington State Parks & Recreation Commission and the Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club to offer a no-cost snowmobile safety certification course on Saturday, Dec. 14th and again on Saturday, January 18th. The class is geared toward new riders from ages 12 to 16, but is open to all fledgling snowmobilers. The course will take place at the Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club, 14400 Chiwawa Loop Rd., in Leavenworth from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Lunch will be provided by its organizers.
