When snowmobiles are on major trails like the Heartland, or in cities, it's easy to tell emergency crews where they are. But when they get into rural areas, snowmobilers often cannot give emergency crews good directions to find them.(Sarah Smith / Enterprise)

A Crookston woman was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center Saturday after being injured in a snowmobile accident south of Two Inlets earlier that day.


It took an ambulance crew an hour to locate Anita Marie Brekken, 42, in the Two Inlets State Forest near 560th Avenue and 290th Street west of the Hubbard County line.

And the accident illustrates the need for snowmobilers to know where they are in case they need emergency help.
