A snowmobile is designed to be a safe vehicle when used as intended. The key to safe operation is YOUR knowledge of the vehicle; recognizing and accepting it as a motorized vehicle; respecting its capabilities and its limitations; varying operating conditions; knowledge of local laws; and good judgement and courtesy. Recognizing your own capabilities and limitations is also a very important factor for the safe operation of a snowmobile.
The Snowmobile Operators Course is a 7 to 8 hour training program operated by CSC certified instructors. The curriculum, which is based on field-tested techniques, provides a fun and orderly way to learn proper snowmobile operation. The rider learns about controls, reading terrain, turning and climbing hills.
A signed consent form is required from a parent or legal guardian, if the student is a child is between 6 and 11 years of age. No child will be allowed to ride without written parental consent.
