With a trail system 100km long Whistler boasts ample terrain to experience snowmobiling for the first time or for seasoned pros to deviate from the beaten path and discover slopes rarely sullied by human activity. The three major Whistler snowmobile providers are Blackcomb Snowmobile Canadian Snowmobile and Cougar Mountain each offering a variety of Whistler snowmobiling tours that cater to all skill levels. Depending on your budget time and taste you could find yourself motoring through old growth forests gazing at the tips of glaciers or drinking in a stunning Whistler mountain vista.
But keep in mind youre still of vital importance to the driver and the snowmobiles handling. After seating yourself behind the driver grab on to one of the rider holds: either the backrest bars the strap on the seat or of course the driver. Remain aware of the trail and upcoming turns. For best handling mirror the movements of the driver and lean when they lean. Anticipate bumps in the trail and use your legs for shock absorption. Finally abandon ship with the driver as its much safer to let the snowmobile stop on its own.
If you are lucky enough to have an establishment near you that offers vintage snowmobile parts then you can go there. However dont pass up the possibility of a better deal on the internet. Naturally like anything you should shop smart. The best way to do this is to search for plenty of information and do numerous comparisons. You can go over peoples testimonials and check an online store for its credibility. If you do your homework you should have a smooth experience that could turn into a long-term business relationship with a good online provider of vintage snowmobile parts.
Keep a space of at least 30 yards from other snowmobiles on the trail. Lastly at slower speeds dont be afraid to take a fall. (Tipping over a couple times is part of the experience). Rules of the road Just like regular driving in North America snowmobiling adheres to the same guidelines (with a few exceptions). Always keep to the right of the trails especially on turns. When stopping do not stop directly on the trail but veer off to the side. Never stop on turns or narrow parts of the trail if you can avoid it. Be courteous and give the right of way to oncoming groups of pedestrians skiers and other snowmobilers.
