They may not be the Guardians of the Galaxy or an Avenger, but the City of Burlington’s Snow Fighter team will be guardians of our roads this winter, fighting what may feel like an infinity war against snowy and icy roads.

Snow plows in tandemThat’s pretty spicy language from the city’s communications department. The media release goes on to say: “In order to prepare, Snow Fighter training will take place at City View Park from Oct. 24 to Oct. 26, with the park closed to the public from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on those days.

Snow Fighters, which include those who operate snow plows, sanders, salters and brine trucks, will be training and practicing their skills throughout the park’s roads and parking lots to ensure the Snow Fighters are ready for the first snowfall.

What is a little confusing is how do you train for driving snow plows when there is no snow? Or does the city know something about the weather the rest of us don’t know.
