Recommendation for Participants
The following recommendations for the ride have been put in place to ensure that it is a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants.
- A NLSF Trail Pass Sticker is required to be attached to the left side of each snowmobile or the driver must possess a Daily Trail Pass receipt.
- Ensure your snowmobile has a full tank of gasoline and oil injector level is full or base oil is full in a four stoke engine.
- Ensure your snowmobile is in good working condition and that the brakes are working.
- Ensure your snowmobile has working headlights, tail lights and brake lights.
- Keep your headlights on while traveling on the ride, so you can be easily seen.
- While on the ride, use the “Buddy System” which means you watch out for the snowmobile behind you and maintain a distance between 2 – 5 seconds. If you do not see your buddy within 5 seconds stop and wait for him/her.
- When you make stops on the trail, check your buddy for signs of frost bite or hypothermia.
- Use trail signs to signal your buddy that there is a stop or a turn ahead. Also use signals to indicate approaching snowmobiles or snowmobiles following behind.
- Maintain your place in the group and stay on the trail during the ride. Drive on the right side of the trail.
- “0” Tolerance is the rule. Alcohol is not permitted on the ride.
- If you pack it in, pack it out.
- Wear warm snowmobile clothing and dress in layers so that you can add or remove to adjust your level of comfort. Proper footwear and gloves are also necessary for warmth.
- Wear a snowmobile helmet.
- Bring any personal items that you feel you should carry with you. Carry any prescription medication that you need is case you are delayed on the trail. A camera will help capture those Kodak moments. A snack or sweet treat if you like them.
- Enjoy your ride!
