Take a Friend Snowmobiling Week starts on Sunday.
The event is organized by the Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association as a way to invite newcomers to experience what snowmobiling is all about.
President Chris Brewer said it’s important for seasoned riders to teach newcomers proper safety training.
“Show them the controls and safe operations,” explained Brewer. “That way when they do go out they get a positive experience.”
He said there are other things to remember, “don’t drink a ride, and please respect ‘no trespassing,’ and just enjoy it.”
The week is an opportunity for those who aren’t sure about going out snowmobiling to try it out.
