What is it like to drive a snowplow?

Some Sturgeon County Councillors and staff recently had the chance to get behind the wheel of a snowplow – well, sort of.

Ledcor hosted a snowplow training session in Sturgeon County with their snowplow simulator. The training tool gives operators a chance to experience the risks and hazards they’ll encounter on the roads. The feel and operation of the “snowplow” is based on data collected in the field to make sure the experience is realistic.

Our snowplow operators have a difficult job to do, please give them lots of room while they work to clear our roads, and at intersections. Please visit Sturgeon County’s Winter Road Ready webpage for more tips on winter driving.

Watch the video to see what it’s like to drive a snowplow. We think Councillor Stang did a great job!

A fire restriction is in effect for Sturgeon County and the towns of Bon Accord, Legal and Redwater.
