DNR offers courses
on snowmobile safety:
With some of the best and earliest snow conditions in several years, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is urging snowmobilers to think safety and consider taking the DNR Snowmobile Safety Training course.
Residents born after Dec. 31, 1976, need a valid snowmobile safety certificate to legally ride a snowmobile. Anyone 11 and older can attend a traditional classroom course taught in local communities. Meanwhile, the DNR offers an Adult Snowmobile Safety CD-ROM for anyone 16 or older.
To request the CD-ROM and snowmobile safety regulations, call the DNR at (888) MINNDNR or send an e-mail to
