Trail Riding Techniques
Courtesy of Snowmobile-ed.com
- Kneeling position.
- Lean uphill.
- Increase the throttle to maintain speed. The deeper the snow, the more power you need.
- Don’t stop or let up until you get to the top. If you lose momentum going upwards, it may be hard to start climbing again once you’ve stopped.
- Sitting position.
- Sit far back on the seat.
- Be prepared to stop.
- Pump the brake firmly to slow your speed and help you to maintain control.
- Lean into the turns to gain control.
- Place your body weight forward to keep the inside ski on the snow.
Crossing A Road
- Find a crossing that has good visibility in both directions.
- Come to a complete stop before crossing.
- Look both ways and slowly drive forward.
- Drive straight across, finding the shortest distance to travel.
- Appoint a crossing guard. The crossing guard will cross first, then unmount his snowmobile to direct the rest of the group across, while watching for traffic in both directions.
