Know Your Snowmobile

A snowmobile is a recreational vehicle designed to travel over ice or snow. It has sled-type runners or skis on the front end and a tractor-like belt tread in the rear.

Snowmobiling can be a fun and safe sport; however, it can be hazardous if you're reckless, inattentive, or uneducated about the snowmobile you're driving.

A safe snowmobiler:

  • Understands the mechanics of the machine.
  • Has respect for its capabilities and its limitations.
  • Knows how to maneuver through a variety of operating conditions.
  • Knows the laws governing snowmobiles.
  • Uses good judgment.
  • Respects others and the environment.

A safe snowmobiler also seeks out equipment with the Label of Certification from the Snowmobile Safety and Certification Committee.
