- Join your local club, they work for you.
- Leave tracks, not trash. If you had space to bring it in, respect nature by carrying it out too.
- Maintain your sled. A well-tuned snowmobile is more environmentally-friendly and reliable.
- Respect wildlife. Animals are more vulnerable in winter, so keep your distance and leave them alone.
- Do not interfere with trap lines or traps.
- Leave it stock. Refrain from using after market pipes that increase noise and annoy others.
- Stay on trails. Whenever possible, reduce your environmental impact by riding on existing trails.
- Respect sensitive and restricted areas. There are lots of other places to ride, so avoid areas that are restricted, protected or environmentally sensitive.
- Embrace new technologies. Mother Nature appreciates snowmobiles that run even more efficiently and effectively.
- Spread the word. Snowmobiles have improved continuously thanks to oil injection, sound reduction, variable height exhaust valves, direct injection, on-board computers and now 4-stroke engines.
- Pedestrians have the right-o-way. Slow down and steer wide if at all possible when meeting pedestrians on trails.
- Read the signs. Pay attention to any posted speed limits and right-o-ways.
- Help others. You never know, some day, you may need help yourself… anyone can get stuck!
- Be prepared, pack and carry some basic survival gear, a first aid kit and waterproof matches.
- File a “flight plan”! Let someone know where you are going and how long you may be.
- Have Fun!
