Snowmobiling Safety Tips
• Be sure your snowmobile is in topnotch mechanical condition at the beginning of the winter season and throughout the months of use.
• Familiarize yourself with the snowmobile you are driving by reading in detail the manual accompanying the snowmobile.
• Wear sensible, protective clothing designed for snowmobiling.
• Use a full-size helmet, goggles, or face shield to prevent injuries from twigs, stones, ice chips, and flying debris.
• Avoid wearing long scarves. They may get caught in moving parts of the snowmobile.
• Know the terrain you are going to ride. If unfamiliar to you, ask someone who has traveled over it before.
• Know the weather forecast and especially the ice and snow conditions in the area.
• Always use the buddy system. Never ride alone or unaccompanied.
• Do not pursue domestic or wild animals. No true sports person would stoop to such conduct.
• If you see a violation of this rule, report it to the nearest law enforcement officer.
• At all times, be sure you have a properly operating lighting system on the snowmobile.
• Drowning is one cause of snowmobile fatalities. When not familiar with the thickness of the ice or water currents, avoid these areas.
