Yes, we know what you’re saying, veteran snowmobilers: You already know the key components to riding your snowmobile safely – like staying right in turns, using hand signals when appropriate and safe, etc. And, the vast, vast, vast majority of snowmobilers don’t need to be reminded not to chase wildlife — it’s common sense, afterall.
That said, even longtime riders should spend the three minutes needed to watch this video about snowmobiling ethics – it might help you explain to a newcomer someday why what they are doing is harmful to the sport, and it might just remind you about something you already knew but haven’t been applying.
The video is a part of the Safe Rider! series produced by the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association. Another recent video highlighted here talked about snowmobile clubs.
