Animation: Riding Uphill Animation Transcript Transcript for Riding Uphill (A person moves to the kneeling position from the sitting position as the snowmobile starts going uphill.) Use the kneeling position. However, you may need to switch to the posting position because it puts pressure on the track for better traction. (The person leans forward.) Lean uphill. Increase the throttle to maintain your speed. The deeper the snow, the more speed you need. (The snowmobile comes back parallel to the land.) Don't stop until you get to the top. If you lose forward momentum, you may not be able to start climbing again. If you do lose forward momentum, you may need to back down the hill and try again.
