Snowmobile Safety Tips – Snowmobiling is an activity the whole family can enjoy and Michigan winters can be perfect for it.  Here are a few reminders to help keep this fun past time memorable:

  • Take a snowmobile safety course so you will know how to ride safely and responsibly.
  • Check the weather and trail conditions.  If the trail is frozen, wind chill too low, or blizzard with white out conditions are forecasted, you will want to plan your ride for another day.
  • Wear appropriate clothes and protective gear.  Staying warm and dry during your ride will make it more enjoyable and safer.
  • Make sure your snowmobile is running properly before heading out.
  • Riding with a friend or in a group is fun and safer, especially on trails you’re not familiar with.
  • Carry a first-aid kit, emergency kit, and repair kit.  It is always wise to have bandages, a flashlight, map, blanket, tools, duct tape, tow rope, etc.
  • Stay alert, watch for obstacles such as fallen trees, rocks, fences, ditches, skiers, etc.
  • Avoid frozen rivers.
  • Do not speed and stay on the trail.
  • Ride with the recommended number of passengers and weight limitations.
  • Never drink and drive.
  • Do not pull people on anything behind your snowmobile.

Yours in Public Safety

 Sheriff Tom Reich
