Snowmobile Regulations Snowmobile regulations and Closures. Forest road use regulations of the ForestPractices Code of BC Act allow for snowmobile operation on unploughed roads http://www.for.gov.bc.ca/drm/recreation/WinterRecreation/SnowmobileRegulations.h
Extractions: Snowmobile Regulations and Closures Forest road use regulations of the Forest Practices Code of BC Act allow for snowmobile operation on unploughed roads within provincial forests, unless such roads are closed for other purposes, such as wildlife protection or commercial heli-skiing. A person must not operate a snowmobile on a Forest Service road if it appears that the road has been snowploughed, or that the road is otherwise fit for travel by other motor vehicles. The maximum allowable speed is 80 km/h but any operating speed must be safe for the conditions. A person does not need to hold a drivers license issued under the Motor Vehicle Act or third party liability insurance while operating a snowmobile on Forest Service roads. However snowmobiles must be registered and marked with identification numbers (decals in British Columbia. Local agreement areas and legal closures are monitored and enforced by Ministry staff. Please refer to the Winter Recreation map brochure and obey posted signs.
Extractions: CPSC Document #541 The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that each year about 110 people die while riding snowmobiles. The Commission estimates that about 13,400 hospital emergency room-treated injuries occur each year with snowmobiles. Approximately two-fifths or 40 percent of the reported deaths resulted from colliding with trees, wires, bridges, and other vehicles. Some deaths occurred when the snowmobile rolled to the side in a ditch or stream and pinned the operator under the vehicle. Deaths also have occurred when the snowmobile entered water, mostly when it was operating on ice and fell through.

Extractions: A vast, unspoiled wilderness awaits you... Trail Reports Live Weather Radar Join our Snowmobiling Forum Clubs ... Enjoy the pristine beauty of Vermont's countryside as you have never seen it before. Snowmobiling allows you to view miles of Vermont's backcountry scenery, see wildlife in their natural habitat, and socialize with your friends. More than 3,100 miles of wide, "corridor" VAST trails and several thousand miles of secondary trails will lead you to spacious fields, high mountain tops, remote farmyards, and hospitable villages. Vermont's snowmobiling season usually starts in mid December, and ends in early April, snow permitting. Northern Vermont and especially the Northeast Kingdom around Island Pond average of 100-250 inches of snow per season. You can spend a week or a day riding the extensive trail system established in the Northeast Kingdom where there is almost always snow! Orleans, Essex, and Caledonia counties offer numerous activities to enjoy while snowmobiling. Weekends provide Chicken Pie Suppers, Pancake Breakfasts, Poker Rides, and Drag Races. These events bring the snowmobile community together for meals and competition. Stop in the village church hall or school for a mouth-watering plate of chicken pie, then head off to watch men and women compete for trophies in drag racing or play your hand in a game of poker during a Poker Ride. If there's no ride-in, pack up your saddlebags and have a picnic alongside the trail. Nothing is more rewarding than a campfire-cooked hot dog on a stick.

Extractions: Subscribe now >> In North America, more than 10 million people enjoy snowmobiling, according to the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association (ISMA), and it is a family sport for most participants. However, the laws governing snowmobiling vary widely between states and provinces, and they are generally less restrictive than regulations which govern the use of other motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles. In some areas, helmets are not required and children as young as eight can legally operate a snowmobile. Often there are no regulations governing snowmobile use on private property. As of Jan. 1, 2001, the State of Wisconsin requires that snowmobilers who are at least 12 years old and who were born after Jan. 1, 1985, must have completed a snowmobile safety course. The state offers an eight-hour safety course that includes classroom study and hands-on operation of a snowmobile. The course is conducted by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and covers such topics as transporting a snowmobile, environmental impacts, protective gear, emergency situations and regulations as well as safety tips. In reviewing data from the past several winters in Wisconsin, the DNR observed that snowmobilers were most likely to be involved in a deadly accident between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m., so extreme caution is urged at night.
