Snowmobile Information:

SAFETY

  • Snowmobiles operated between sunset and sunrise must have at least one headlight that illuminates objects 100 feet ahead and one red tail that can be seen from 500 feet.
  • As an extra safety precaution, you may wish to have your lights on at all times while operating your snowmobile.
  • Be careful when crossing roads of any kind. Come to a complete stop and make absolutely sure no traffic is approaching from any direction. Then cross at a right angle to traffic.
  • Know your abilities and don't go beyond them.
  • Know your machine's capabilities and don't push beyond them.
  • Know your riding area. Get a map. Talk to the locals.
  • Don't snowmobile alone.
  • The safest snowmobiling rule is never to cross lakes or rivers.
  • Any snowmobile accident resulting in death, personal injury or property damage must be reported immediately to the nearest law enforcement agency.
  • NEVER drink and ride.
  • Always be sure your machine is in good mechanical condition and be thoroughly familiar with it before you ride.
  • Wear warm multilayered protective clothing, a protective helmet and goggles or a visor.
  • Think ahead: remember, it's you, the Safe Rider, that makes snowmobiling safe. Many problems will be avoided by using common sense. Minor problems can be overcome by carrying a useful tool kit, spare parts, flashlight, first-aid kit, and a few survival items such as high energy food, fire starting equipment and a compass.

KEEP COLORADO SNOWMOBILING BEAUTIFUL

  • Treat the outdoors with respect. Do not litter or damage trees or other vegetation.
  • Remember you must have the permission of landowners before snowmobiling on their property.
  • Operate snowmobiles only on land and trails designated for their use.
  • Watch out for small trees and shrubs
  • Carry out your trash.
  • Steer clear of wildlife and report any incidents of harassment or hunting of wildlife to the nearest law enforcement agency.
