    Safe Riders! Stay safe on the trails this winter

    The 2008-09 season is fast approaching and the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association has prepared some new and updated Safe Riders! Material you can use to help promote sled safety in your area.
    The material consists of a 22-minute safety video that is used in conjunction with safety training worldwide. ISMA distributes snowmobiling fact books free. These books contain more than 20 pages of facts on snowmobiling that can be used when discussing issues with land access managers, politicians, community leaders and others. Also available are Safe Riders! helmet stickers and posters. The posters cover key issues to remember while out on the trails such as:
    • Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – Don’t drink a ride  
    • Ride Smart Ride Right – Stay in Control  
    • When night riding, slow down – Expect the unexpected  
    • Know before you go – Always check local ice conditions
    • Cross with care – Don’t become road kill
    • One is the loneliest number – Never ride alone
    • Ride Safe, stay on the trail – Respect private property
    • Know the risks and be prepared – Make every trip a round trip
    If you need some Safe Riders! materials, visit the ISMA Web site at www.snowmobile.org.
    Get ready now because The Farmer’s Almanac says there will be above normal snowfall for the Great Lakes and Midwest regions, and above normal precipitation for much of the country. This is going to be a good snowmobiling winter!
