Meet Ben Potts
Get you sleds running!!!
Hopefully everyone is ready for snow because I sure am!! That means the snowmobile season will soon be upon us! The Snowmobile North Dakota convention just wrapped up on November 1st up in the great city of Minot, so now it is time to start getting your snowmobile ready for the season if you have not already done so.
Here are some things you need to make sure you have on your snowmobile before you ride:
• Any snowmobile being driven on public land is required to be registered with the ND Department of Transportation. Registration fee is $40 paid every 2 years. Place your registration stickers on either side of your snowmobile in a place that is visible. • Any out-of-state snowmobile being driven on public land is required to purchase and carry with them the out-of-state public trails and lands access permit. This permit is $15 and is available to purchase online at www.parkrec.nd.gov and click on Online Services. • Any snowmobile being driven on any portion of the state snowmobile trail system is also required to have liability insurance on the snowmobile and carry proof of insurance with them.
Don’t forget that anyone 12 and older, who does not have a valid driver’s license, is required to have a snowmobile safety certification card obtained through one of our safety courses. Tari has been working hard at scheduling courses so check for one in your area by visiting www. parkrec.nd.gov or watch for SND constant contact notice.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to call me at 701328-5357.
Be safe and see you out on the trails when the snow flies!!!!
