At 12:40 a.m. on February 23, 2020 Rose Valley RCMP responded to a report of a single snowmobile collision two miles east of Archerwill on a snowmobile trail. A 33-year-old male was pronounced deceased at the scene by EMS.

Both investigations are ongoing and at this preliminary stage, investigators believe alcohol may be a factor.

The recent mild weather means more people are out and about using their snowmobiles. Considering two fatal snowmobile incidents occurred within a very short period of time over the weekend, Saskatchewan RCMP want to remind the public about safety involving snowmobiles. Always remember to obey all trail signs and speed limits, wear proper snowmobile attire including a helmet and never ride impaired.
