Snowmobilers Care About Our Environment
For more than 40 years, snowmobilers have acted as environmental stewards, doing our part to keep nature beautiful. Today, responsible riding is more important than ever, so Snoman Inc. encourages snowmobilers to continue to:
Stay On The Trail
Whenever possible, reduce your environmental footprint by riding on organized snowmobile trails, which act as defined corridors to move sleds along with the minimal impact on nature.
Respect Sensitive Areas
It is important to stay on trails in areas marked as environmentally sensitive or protected habitats.
Leave Tracks, Not Trash
If you had space to bring it in, then respect nature by carrying litter out with you. This includes sled parts, such as broken belts, oil containers, used spark plugs, food, cans, etc.
Spread the Word
Snowmobiling and the environment is a good news story. Snowmobilers are proud of their stewardship contributions and the CCSO encourages every rider to spread the word about our progress in keeping nature beautiful.
Embrace New Technologies
Today’s clean and advanced technology, snowmobiles run even more efficiently, effectively, and much quieter too. They also benefit Mother Nature by significantly reducing emissions and virtually eliminating smoke and smell.
Maintain Your Sled
A well-tuned snowmobile is more environmentally friendly, efficient, and reliable, so be sure your sled is in tip-top shape before each ride.
Keep your distance and leave wildlife alone, allowing them to move away from you at their own pace. Avoid riding in areas reserved for endangered species.
Keep It Quiet
Refrain from replacing the manufacturer’s certified and approved muffler with noisy after-market pipes that may disturb wildlife, increase emissions and annoy others.
