Fast Fact: Are snowmobiles used only for recreation?

No, snowmobiles serve many other functions. In remote portions of Canada and the U.S., snowmobiles are some residents’ primary mode of transportation. Snowmobiles are relied upon by law enforcement units throughout the snowbelt for search-and-rescue work and emergency missions. They are also used by surveyors, ranchers, public utility employees, environmental and wildlife scientists, and countless others. Snowmobiles are also widely used by cross country ski race officials, dog sled races and by ski patrols for rescue purposes.
