Take extra care with children on board; go slow and take short trips. Keep children safe by always having another adult ride with you (2 adults 2 snowmobiles 1-2 children). The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under age 16 not operate snowmobiles and that children under age 6 never ride on snowmobiles. When children do ride make sure they are aware of snowmobile safety rules even for a quick trip around the property. Check the weather and trail reports before you go. Avoid riding on ice-covered lakes and rivers. Underwater currents and blankets of snow can both create and conceal thin ice. Stay on designated snowmobile trails and dont venture off.
The earliest incarnation of snowmobiles date back to 1923 when Carl Eliason of Sayner Wisconsin hand-built the first model. His invention consisted of a modified Model T Ford stripped of its tires and the undercarriage replaced with tracks and skis. His invention proved popular for rural mail delivery. Thankfully snowmobiles have progressed greatly since those heady days of delivering mail and can be found throughout the worlds snowy realms. One such destination where snowmobiles have found a particular home is nestled in the resort community of Whistler BC.
We cant all be James Bond or a professional snowmobile racer but many of us can enjoy the highly technical and exciting sleds manufactured by the Bombardier Company. Ski Doo snowmobiles continue to rise in popularity. The company offers special models of snowmobiles that can only be ordered in the spring. These early ordering programs have become quite popular enabling a rider to be the first in line for the coveted new models and designs. You can expect to see many Ski Doo snowmobiles this winter zipping along freshly groomed trails and fresh powder.
Pierce Broson as James Bond used the Ski Doo model MX Z-Rev for his dramatic action scenes in the 2002 movie "Die Another Day." This high tech sled model in a bright design of black red and silver was made available on a limited basis for consumers to purchase. This specially designed snowmobile is now displayed at the National Motor Museum in England. These snowmobiles have captured the imagination of sled enthusiasts daredevils and the young at heart. Many young snowmobilers flush with their hard earned savings and a desire to be cool often purchase a sled as their first snowmobile.
