Snowmobile Safety Tips:

1. Take a snowmobile safety course.

Many states require a snowmobile certificate and each state has its own rules and regulations. A snowmobile safety course will instruct you on how to ride safely and responsibly and teach you the rules. It is especially essential for first-time drivers or riders. You will learn riding techniques to help you operate the snowmobile and avoid hazards.

2. Check the weather forecast and the trail conditions.

It is always a good idea to check the weather and trail conditions to plan ahead. If the trail is frozen, the wind chill is too low, or a blizzard with white-out conditions is in the forecast, you will want to plan your ride for another day.

3. Wear appropriate clothing and protective gear.

Staying warm and dry during your ride will make it more enjoyable and safer. Wear a snowmobile suit, which commonly consists of a jacket and insulated bibs. Under your snowmobile suit, dress in layers. Stay away from cotton because if it gets wet, it will freeze.

Choose polyester blends to wick moisture away from your body. In addition, wear goggles or a face shield if you do not have a full-face helmet, socks (no cotton), waterproof gloves, winter hat, facemask, and winter boots. Always wear a DOT-approved helmet, not only to keep you warm but to also protect your head from injury. Make sure children have a helmet that properly fits.

4. Inspect your snowmobile before your ride.

Make sure your snowmobile is running properly before heading out on the trail. Having your owner’s manual handy on your ride is a good idea for extra safety.

It is important to follow the recommended service schedule to keep it maintained and running smoothly. Before each ride, check fuel and oil levels, battery, brakes, drive belts, skis, throttle, handlebars, headlights, and taillights.

5. Bring a buddy.

Riding with a friend or in a group is fun and also safer, especially on trails you have never taken before. Someone else can help you if your snowmobile breaks down or if you get into an accident. It is also recommended to tell a friend or family member your plans and route for your ride in case you do get stranded. Keep in mind that cell phones don’t always work in remote areas.

6. Carry a first-aid kit, emergency kit, and repair kit.

Keep a basic first-aid kit in the snowmobile in case of injury. It should include disinfecting wipes, bandages, hand sanitizer, gauze, adhesive tape, and Band-Aids. In addition, carry an emergency kit with waterproof matches, a flashlight, compass, map, blanket, water, snacks, and a knife. A repair kit is also essential and should include: duct tape, tools, spare belt, tow rope, spark plugs, and pry bar.

7. Stay alert.

It is important to be observant and watch for obstacles in your path, such as rocks, fallen trees, barbed wire fences, ditches, open water, other snowmobiles, snowbanks, animals, hikers, and skiers.

8. Avoid frozen rivers.

It is impossible to gauge the thickness of the ice. Ice can easily crack and give way under your snowmobile.

9. Do not speed.

Driving at a moderate pace will allow you to react to an unexpected occurrence on your trail and avoid an accident. Many trails have posted speed limits to follow.

10. Stay on the trail.

Marked trails are safer because they have been groomed for you and are less likely to have hazards. Going off-trail can result in accidents because you are treading on unfamiliar terrain. Also, many ‘public’ trails run close to private property. Unless you have received permission from the landowner, stay on the marked trail.
