The International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association (ISMA) has released a 13-chapter video series on YouTube about snowmobiling and safety. The new Safe Riders! video series covers snowmobile safety and lifestyle issues. The chapters were created to support snowmobile safety instruction and information.

SnoRiders is happy to help the ISMA distribute this information far and wide. We are featuring a chapter each week over a 13-week period in an effort to further educate and inform our readers and, in this case, viewers.

Safe Riders! Chapter 4: Snowmobile Avalanche Preparedness

Proper safety equipment, knowledge of snowmobiling conditions and awareness are the best defenses against avalanches. Some of the best resources are local law enforcement, park rangers, snowmobile clubs, snowmobile dealers and outfitters and snowmobiling safety websites.
