Children’s Snowmobile Safety
Recommendations from: The Canadian Pediatric Society
• Every rider must use a snowmobile helmet on every trip.
• Children under the age of 16 should not drive a snowmobile.
• Children under age six should not ride as passengers on snowmobiles.
• Avoid 'kid-sized' snowmobiles despite their smaller size. They are still
not safe for children's use.
• Snowmobile drivers should receive instruction in the safe operation of
their machine by an instructor. Contact your provincial or local
• Never tow a person behind a snowmobile.
