Wintertime as we all know is a time of cold winds falling snow and snow covered terrain. The average vehicle needs snow chains to travel through snow covered roads but these will have trouble with deeper snow covered areas. Snowmobiles which were configured for this type of terrain began in 1916 and you can still find some of these age-old snowmobile vehicles out on the snow covered ground. The antique snowmobile still has a lot to offer in the way of restoration. You also might be amazed at the strength of these old vehicles.
Keep a space of at least 30 yards from other snowmobiles on the trail. Lastly at slower speeds dont be afraid to take a fall. (Tipping over a couple times is part of the experience). Rules of the road Just like regular driving in North America snowmobiling adheres to the same guidelines (with a few exceptions). Always keep to the right of the trails especially on turns. When stopping do not stop directly on the trail but veer off to the side. Never stop on turns or narrow parts of the trail if you can avoid it. Be courteous and give the right of way to oncoming groups of pedestrians skiers and other snowmobilers.
The wildly popular Ski Doo snowmobiles are manufactured by the Canadian Bombardier Company. Since Armand Bombardier designed his first snowmobile in 1937 this company has led the way in snowmobile design and innovation with its Ski Doo models of snowmobiles. The Ski Doo sleds have become so popular that many people refer to all makes of snowmobiles as Ski Doos even though there are three other snowmobile manufacturers producing quality sleds. Ski Doo sleds have been used in many winter olympics and are a popular prop for action movies.
Not only is this potentially dangerous from debris hidden by snow but it is trespassing and landowner complaints may close the trail. Always wear a helmet and facemask. Dress in layers under a full-body snowmobile suit; wear proper gloves mittens and boots. Consider that when you are riding at 40mph you are creating 40mph winds upon yourself which makes the air feel much colder on any exposed skin. Take a Snowmobile Safety Course. Especially if you only ride a handful of times a year its worth the $10 to take the independent study course from the Minnesota DNR. You can get a training CD by visiting their certification page. Youll need it to get certified and since youll have the CD at home you can review it before you ride for the first time each season.
