    Sep 03, 2013

    As summer comes to an end our thoughts will soon be turning to snow! The snowmobile manufacturers, in cooperation with the snowmobiling community are again pleased to support the Safe Riders! You make snowmobiling safe Safety Campaign. Safe Riders! materials that include our Snowmobiling Fact book, brochures, posters, and safety DVD. We have distributed millions of pieces of Safe Riders! snowmobile safety materials over the last 18 years.

     

    We encourage you to visit our web site www.snowmobile.org and view our family friendly snowmobiling photos. You may use the photos in any of your brochures, maps, advertising pieces, e-newsletters, etc. promoting snowmobiling in your area. The new photos are located in the download section of the web site. We also have two TV broadcast quality snowmobiling spots which can be used to promote snowmobiling in your area. If you are going to do any TV promotion, consider using these spots. They’re family friendly and you can customize them to meet your needs.

     

    We have print public service announcements to promote safe snowmobiling that you can utilize in your as well as downloadable versions and line art versions of our safety posters. We encourage you to utilize our free downloadable items in your winter publications or used them to make placemats, coloring sheets, etc all to help promote safe responsible snowmobiling this winter in your area.

     

    The www.gosnowmobiling.org web site is an excellent resource for new snowmobilers just getting started or for people who want to travel to a snowmobiling destination. Last year over 4 million visitors came to the site and found it very helpful – based on their survey responses.

      Perhaps SAM should download some of these posters, get copies made and hand them out at the Sno-Expo. It might be a big hit with the kids.

        I am looking for a snowmobile safety course for our son to take before this upcoming season.   I am also getting mixed information on the claifications on age restrictions to be able to ride his own sled on mass trails  with adults supervising him.  Any help would be great.

      There are no safety course requirement in Massachusetts at this time but several clubs offer them during the year. Check the events page periodically. You can also check the Vermont VAST website. I’m guessing you already looked at the sledmass safety page, http://sledmass.com/safety-classes/ There are online course, too.

      As for the age limits, there was some confusion when the law was updated a few years back. The details are at Massachusetts CMR 323 http://www.lawlib.state.ma.us/…..23CMR3.pdf
      Look under “operation”.

      The state is aware of the issue and trying to fix this back to where it was, essentially:

      A person between the ages of 12 and 14 years old may operate a snow vehicle if directly supervised by a person 18 years old or older.
       
      A person between the ages of 10 and 12 years may operate a snow vehicle if directly supervised by a person 18 years old or older on your own property.
