Take an Avalanche Safety Course!  

Be smart and safe on your snowmobile this winter. CPW recommends that snowmobilers take an avalanche safety course, and always carry shovels, probes and avalanche beacons—and know how to use them. Monitoring snow conditions, especially after large snow falls, big changes in temperature, and big wind events is important in judging the safety of slopes. Be especially careful on steep slopes, above timberline, and when maneuvering through drainages. To find an avalanche safety course, view theColorado Parks and Wildlife calendar or visit the Colorado Snowmobile Association (CSA) website.
