Safety Talk for Ski Areas: Safe Snowmobiling

Safe Snowmobiling Overview

Every year, numerous workers at BC ski areas sustain injuries while operating snowmobiles. These injuries, and even fatalities, often occur due to collisions with trees, fencing, bridges, and other vehicles. Additionally, some accidents happen when snowmobiles overturn into ditches or streams, trapping the operator beneath the vehicle. The objective of this Safety Talk is to minimize the occurrence of such incidents, and reduce the number of workers injured while using snowmobiles.
