Those who register are also encouraged to bring their friends and riding buddies to ensure those they ride with are also well informed.
"Snowmobilers' safety comes first for BRP, which is why we are involved in the promotion of avalanche education," said Mathieu Laforest, Global Ski-Doo Marketing director. "Together with our dealers, we've worked very closely with experts to design seminars that are engaging, educational and entertaining for snowmobilers."
Seminars will be led by Jeremy Hanke, a recognized avalanche professional, a member of the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA) advisory board and one of the creators of Throttle Decisions, a renowned avalanche safety awareness video. Jeremy is an AST 2 certified instructor.
