I've been asked to give a snow machining safety class to my unit and I was wondering if anybody wants to help out. I'll have to put together a power point class that covers all the basics. Keep in mind that this class will be geared towards mainly first time riders.
1. Safety gear (helmet, gloves, goggles, tow rope, etc)
2. Where to ride, terrain and dangers to watch for (cliffs, overflow, avalanches, etc)
3. Types of snow machines
4. Snow machine maintenance (make sure they know how to change belt etc before going out)
5. General smart things to do.
(Ride with a buddy, no drugs or alcohol, trip planning, survival gear)
If anybody would like to add anything please respond back with your recommendations. If you have pictures of what not to do (wrecks etc) it would spice up my class.
