International Snowmobile Safety Week will be Jan. 18-26. Many local clubs and snowmobile associations take this time to teach snowmobilers about safe riding, and many dealerships help by putting on seminars teaching customers how to maintain their sleds and keep them running in top condition.
Visit www.snowmobile.org and download a Safety Week Campaign Action Manual with ideas on how to promote safety week and ideas for putting on safety week events.
Also, the 6th annual Take a Friend Snowmobiling Week is scheduled for Feb. 8-17. Consider partnering with local clubs and other local businesses to encourage non-snowmobiling friends or those who haven’t been snowmobiling for a while to join you.
Many have tried snowmobiling for the first time with the experience resulting in the purchase of a snowmobile and joining a club and association.
