Before you head out in winter, change your transmission fluid to a lighter weight. If your ATV is water cooled, you’ll need to check the antifreeze level. Consult your owner’s manual for other cold-weather requirements.
Ride only on firm snow or groomed trails. Riding on soft snow can damage the terrain.
Check with local enforcement officials to find out if ATVs are allowed on snowmobile trails.
Check local weather forecasts, and monitor weather changes.
Dress warmly to offset the wind chill created by your motion.
Watch for snow drifts. They may cause an accident or cause you to get stuck.
