Course Outline

  • 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.
