Make safety the top priority for every snowmobile ride!
Reminders from the DNR:
Snowmobile operators need to be safe and responsible while on the trails, routes and frozen bodies of water.
It is never OK to drink and operate a snowmobile. Impairment of any kind – drugs or alcohol – can have tragic consequences.
Always operate within the limits of your skills, visibility and snowmobile. Sled Safe, Sled Smart.
