Considerate snowmobile riding
  • Ride only where permitted.
  • Be considerate of others on the trail, and keep to the right.
  • When riding downhill, yield to uphill traffic. Uphill traffic may have difficulty starting again after stopping.
  • Announce your intention before passing.
  • Slow down when someone is passing you.
  • If you meet bikers, skiers, horses, hikers, or dog sleds coming from the opposite direction, slow down, pull over, and yield the right-of-way.
  • If you stop to talk to others on the trail, be polite and remove your helmet. Also remove your helmet before you go into a gas station, store, or other location where you may have contact with others. A helmet masks your features and can be intimidating.
  • Be safe and considerate when you stop along the trail. Never stop side-by-side, in the middle of the trail, at the crest of a hill, or around a corner on the trail. Also, never block an intersection. Remember to shut off your engine.
  • Leave gates as you find them.
  • Report downed trees and trail maintenance needs to land managers.
  • Report illegal riding.
  • Carry out what you carry in.
