Welcome 2013! Welcome back snow!

This time last year, as we were getting into the spirit of International Snowmobile Safety Week, we noticed something important was missing. Snow! Across North America, last year was one of the least snowy in recent memory. We even drew up a nifty graphic comparing last year to historical averages.

Thankfully, it looks like things have turned around on the snowfall front and 2013 is shaping up to be a great year for riding.

But with lots of snow, and lots of activity out on the trails (and maybe a little riding rust from last year’s less than ideal season) it’s more important than ever to be mindful of safety. So it’s perfect timing for International Snowmobile Safety Week.

International Snowmobile Safety Week, which starts on January 13th and runs to the 19th, provides a great opportunity to review safety basics. One of the best ways to do that is to take an online snowmobile course. In fact, in a growing number of states and provinces, taking an online safety course is now mandatory.

Check if you need to take a course at If you do, you can take $5 off your online course by entering the code SNOWFALL when you go to make payment. It’s a little special offer we’re doing for Snowmobile Safety Week.

Have a great week (and winter) of fun and safe riding!
