Snowmachines have the ability to cover significantly more terrain than other backcountry travelers. As a result, snowmachiners have the potential to expose themselves to much more avalanche terrain. Good routes and travel habits can reduce the risk of getting caught in a slide.

Do you have the avalanche skills to live to ride another day?

Think about your group…do they have the skills to dig you out?

The Alaska Avalanche Information Center is working with NAOI, AIARE and the AAA to assist in the development of curriculum standards and course progression guidelines for snowmobile specific avalanche education in the US. We have been working towards this goal for several years, making headway towards the development and implementation of pertinent and effective avalanche education designed specifically for snowmobilers. If you have ideas or want to schedule a snowmachine specific class for your riding group or club, please contact us.
