Passengers riding on back of snowmobiles

Carrying a passenger involves special skills. As your basic riding skills progress, practice these skills.

  • Carry a passenger only if your snowmobile is designed to; most are not.
  • Ask passengers to stay seated so that they maintain the lowest center of gravity possible. By standing, they can affect your ability to maneuver the machine.
  • Warn passengers about extending their arms and legs outside the machine where they may collide with branches or bushes.
  • Before crossing a road, have passengers dismount and walk across.
