Ethics

  • 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!
