Anytime your out snowmobiling in the back country, there's always that
chance of having trouble or finding someone else in trouble. Your chances for
survival will often depend on your state of mind, your equipment, and your
knowledge on how to use it. One of the things we recommend is to build your own
survival kit, store bought kits are usually full of cheap equipment, that offer
little help, and your life may depend on your equipment. Below are some of the
necessary items you should carry with you at all times.
Waterproof matches-- butane lighters
Basic first aid kit
Food-- such as hard
candy, high energy bars
Water-- we CAN NOT SURVIVE WITHOUT
There are many more items you might want to add to your list, this will
give you a good start. Always start out wearing the proper waterproof clothing
and boots, layers are your best choice. Wool and synthetics are best. If you are
wearing cotton, once it gets wet, it has no insulation value.
