International Safety Week
Snowmobiling is a fun and exciting family activity enjoyed by over 4 million people across the United States and Canada. The sport is a safe and enjoyable form of recreation if done properly and with respect.
Unfortunately, the excitement of snowmobiling may occasionally turn into tragedy. Every year people are injured and killed while participating in a pastime that should be remembered with only fond memories.
Injuries and deaths that are related to snowmobiling can be prevented. Frequently reported contributing factors in accidents include excessive speed, drowning, unsafe operation, inattention, and operating under the influence of alcohol.
The purpose of International Snowmobile Safety Week is to expose people to safe snowmobiling practices and to demonstrate how operating safely can prevent mishaps. It is our intent to furnish the Snowmobiling Public with information that will that will allow them to become safe and responsible snowmobilers.
Each year, VAST will provide snowmobilers with the most recent version of the International Snowmobile Safety Week guide. This guide is a primmer for all snowmobile clubs, that will assist them in organizing local "Grass Roots Efforts," this will make a difference within their communities by fostering "Safe Snowmobiling."
