This day is all about shadowing the pros in the mountains and learning about decision making and mountain safety as you move through the terrain. Groups will be split based on age and ability (remember all youth under 16 must be accompanied by an adult). Come see how we are prepared when we ride and what it takes to make sure you come home every night. There will be additional snowmobile skills included in this clinic.
This is a great opportunity to promote the sport with the next generation - make sure you take advantage of this packed weekend to come out with your youth and learn the ropes with the pros!
Spread the word, let’s make this a successful weekend! See you out there!
