Getting outside during the winter is one of the best ways to beat the winter blues, but when we go out in the snow, safety has to be a priority. The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department will teach a free snowmobile safety course here at the library on Tuesday, December 6 from 5-8:30pm.

The Michigan DNR recommends snowmobile safety training for all snowmobile operators.  Since snowmobiles are capable of high rates of speeds over snow & ice, there are countless hazards that come up while operating a snowmobile.  Kids 12-16 will receive a snowmobile safety certificate upon successfully completing the class on December 6.

You must successfully complete a snowmobile safety course if you are:

  • A person 12-16 years of age operating a snowmobile without direct supervision of a person 21 years of age or older.
  • A person 12-16 years of age may not cross a highway or street without having a valid snowmobile safety certificate in their immediate possession.

Be sure to reserve a space for this class by registering online or calling 616.846.5770.
