Snowmobile Intermediate Classes
for Corporate / Government Agency

Who is an Intermediate?

Intermediate snowmobilers have some riding experience (on and off of the job) and are somewhat comfortable with their ability to negotiate certain types of terrain and snow conditions.  Although they can accomplish basic tasks, they have not experienced the variety of training and job situations that are critical for their job effectiveness and efficiency.  Intermediate riders need to become highly aware of their abilities, limitations, and the capability of their equipment so they can best serve your agency.

  • Do some of your employees feel uneasy when challenged by:
    • side hills?
    • creek crossings?
    • powder snow?
  • Do they ever wonder when they should brake or get on the gas to save themselves?
  • Have they ever been sucked into someone else’s track rut?

About the Class

To ensure that employees can immediately apply everything they are taught in actual riding situations, 85 percent of this class is taught on the snow.
