What does snowmobiling have to do with skiing? It depends. Some skiers hate them. Some skiiers regularly use snowmobiles to get into the back country and find that perfect untracked powder. Most ski areas use snowmobiles to get their employees around the area. Many skiers like to take a day off from skiing and hit the snowmobile trails. It is another recreational opportunity that more and morewinter resorts are offering. The December Issue of Ski magazine has an article on snowmobiling.
My partner and I just finished a film titled, Rules of the Snow. It is a 50 minute film which takes a new approach to the subject of snowmobile safety. Rules of the Snow is an excellent introduction to those who are new to the sport and an interesting refresher for those who have snowmobiled for years. It¹s a documentary-style safety film which examines the fun of snowmobiling as well as the major ways that snowmobilers get themselves into trouble. Over thirty experts discuss such topics as: riding on ice, avalanches, speed, racing, snowmobile clubs, obstacles, winter survival, safe riding tips, helicopter rescue, alcohol, rules of the road, safe riding tips, and more. There is also a section on courtesy towards other users on the trail.
