Hi, I’m Chris Haller, Utah States Off Highway Vehicle Program Manager. We’d like to remind everyone that before they get out and participate on the greatest ride on Earth, that they perform a T-Clock. No, that’s not a Dr. Suess acronym, it’s just a safety inspection we’d like to remind you to perform before you ever leave your driveway. Also, we’d like to remind everyone to wear a helmet in Utah. It is a requirement for those 17 years of age and younger. And before you go out on the trail if you are between the ages of 8 and 15, we want you to get educated. It is a requirement to have an education certificate whenever you are operating a snowmobile on public lands. Before you head out on the trail as far as personal protective gear is to make sure you have avalanche beacon. Just like a smoke detector, make sure the batteries are working before you head out. Another thing we recommend is for you to carry a probe. A probe allows you to search for a person below the snowline if they are caught in an avalanche. Then we also recommend that everyone carry a shovel with them at all times, either on their back or on the snowmobile. And we recommend that you layer up and one final item, make sure you always carry a belt for yourself or another rider. Make sure you have fuel, oil, your lights are working and check your track.
