A heavy snow can conceal large rocks or felled trees beneath a seemingly uniform surface causing damage to the machine and a loss of control. Property owners have a duty to keep their property free of latent defects although the property owner must know or have reason to know about the particular defect and that people will be crossing the property on a snowmobile. What constitutes constructive knowledge varies by jurisdiction. Manufacturer Liability In some limited cases the manufacturer of the snowmobile may be liable for damages.
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.
Getting unstuck To avoid getting stuck in the first place remember to stop in deep snow only if you are pointed downhill. Also watch for depressions in the powder which could be stream beds that make it extremely difficult to pull a sled from. And remember dont be afraid of getting stuck as its bound to happen a few times a day unless youre staying on perfectly groomed trails. As long as you keep the throttle going you are likely to pull through the soft spots. Save your butt Some heavily used Whistler trails can become bumpy and inflict stinging pain on your spine.
Loose head nuts can cause a loss in compression. Replace any worn or damaged gaskets. Are there blockages in the fuel line? The next step is to check your fuel line for blockages. Remove the shroud that covers the engine. The fuel line runs from the tank to the engine and is usually clear so blockages will be easy to see. Blockages are caused by improper storage of your snowmobile. If you find a blockage remove the fuel line clean out the blockage and return it to its original position. If it is damaged replace it. What do the spark plugs look like? You should check the spark plugs in the snowmobile. Clean away carbon or other corrosion with a wire brush.
