When you’re riding a snowmobile, especially in the mountains, you’re eventually going to get stuck. Adam Trainer, owner of Grizzly Lodge in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada, offers a couple quick and easy methods for freeing your snowmobile.
You should always ride with a buddy for safety. He or she can help free your sled if you get stuck. Unless the sled is completely buried, this technique works most of the time.
Sometimes it’s easier to roll the sled over rather than dig it out with a shovel, especially if you’re on a hillside.
If you bury your sled in a tree well or other area with no exit, you’ll have to use your shovel. Make a path, free the track and then hit the throttle.
