Snow Jockeys Prepare for the Other Season

More than 100 snowplow operators are currently participating in an intensive training program to prepare for the worst road conditions a Minnesota winter has to offer. The training session began Sept. 20 and runs through Oct. 1 at the training facility at Camp Ripley near Little Falls, Minn.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation’s snowplow operator training program, known as SPOT, is a two-week session that highlights a variety of safety measures, plowing techniques and best practices. The session provides trainees with updates on new equipment, policies and procedures related to winter highway maintenance operations.
