International Snowmobile Safety Week will be Jan. 16-22, 2011. Many local clubs and snowmobile associations take this time to teach snowmobilers about safe riding and many dealerships help by putting on seminars teaching customers how to maintain their sleds and keep them running in top condition.

The 3rd annual Take A Friend Snowmobiling Week is scheduled for Feb. 12-21, 2011. Consider partnering with local clubs and other local businesses to encourage non-snowmobiling friends or those who haven’t been snowmobiling for a while to join you for a time of fun.
Many have tried snowmobiling for the first time with the experience resulting in the purchase of a snowmobile and joining a club and association—all because somebody asked them to come along. For more information and ideas on throwing a Take A Friend Snowmobiling event, visit www.gosnowmobiling.org.
The www.gosnowmobiling.org website is an excellent resource for new snowmobilers just getting started or for people who want to travel to a snowmobiling destination. Last year more than 2.5 million visitors came to the site and found it very helpful, based on their survey responses.
