<<< Back to Safety
A disproportionate number of snowmobiling incidents, including nine out of
ten fatalities, occur after dark. Most often night riding also includes alcohol
consumption and excessive speed.
Forward visibility is reduced by darkness and it is much more difficult to
spot and identify potential hazards in time. Overdriving headlights can also be
a serious problem, so slow down when snowmobiling after dark. Becoming
disoriented or lost is much more likely at night.
Never travel alone at night and if you approach an ice crossing, know before you go. Remember that
cell phones canít get a signal in many remote areas and getting help to you can be greatly hindered.
Always wear outer clothing with reflective trim on the arms, back and helmet. Never ride alone at night.
Always dress in your full snowmobiling outfit even if your intended destination is just next door.
We want you to Arrive Alive!
