Course Outline

  • Use the sitting position.
  • Sit as far back on the seat as possible.
  • Stay focused and be prepared to stop—losing control is the greatest hazard.
  • Do not release the clutch. Keep the clutch engaged to help you slow down.
  • Pump the brake (alternately squeezing and releasing the brake) every few seconds to maintain a slow speed or stop. Applying a hard brake abruptly can cause the snowmobile to slide.
  • If you are at the top of a hill and other snowmobiles are coming up, let them pass you before going down.
