Riding Positions

Learn to position your body properly as you maneuver through various types of terrain. Mastering the basic riding positions is the key to safe snowmobiling.


A person moves to the standing position from the sitting position on the snowmobile.

  • Standing gives you maximum visibility.
  • In areas with obstructions, this position can help you look over an obstacle to see if another is behind it.
  • At road crossings, this position provides the longest line of sight.
  • Standing lets you shift your weight quickly in any direction and change riding positions.
