Snowmobile Safety Tips

Safe Riding Hints

  • Always keep your machine in top mechanical condition.
  • Always wear insulated boots and protective clothing including a helmet, gloves and eye protection.
  • Never ride alone.
  • Avoid, when possible, crossing frozen bodies of water.
  • Never operate in a single file when crossing frozen bodies of water.
  • Always be alert to avoid fences and low strung wires.
  • Never operate on a street or highway.
  • Always look for depressions in the snow.
  • Keep headlights and tail lights on at all times.
  • When approaching an intersection, come to a complete stop, raise off the seat and look for traffic.
  • Always check the weather conditions before you depart.

Snowmobilers Please

Slow Down - speed is a contributing factor in nearly all fatal accidents.
Don't drink - alcohol impairs judgment and slows reaction time. Make it 'none' for the trail.
