Using the Sitting Position

Sitting position

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.

Sitting is the safest and most stable position.

  • Sitting is the most common position. It provides the lowest center of gravity for maximum stability and safety.
  • This is the only position recommended for carrying passengers if the snowmobile is designed for that purpose.
  • Keep your feet firmly on the running boards and in the foot wells.
