Hand Signals

    When traveling as a group, you must give hand signals to the person behind you. Don't make sloppy signals. Be sure the person behind you can see your signals. Use signals at all times when riding.

Snowmobile Coming

Snowmobiles coming - move over to extreme right hand side of trail.


    These signals are expecially important when group riding. Stay a safe distance behind the snowmobile ahead of you. When you are making a turn, remember that at a blind corner the noise of your machine may prevent you from hearing another machine coming toward you. Approach turns carefully. Always stay to the right on a trail. Slow down when passing skiers or snowshoers.
