With winter already here, many of us are dealing with the sudden influx of snow. It's funny how something we used to love and enjoy so much as kids becomes one of the most inconvenient parts of the season as we grow older. Somewhere along the line, many of us lost our sense of fun, and we don't appreciate the fun-filled potential the snow and cold weather has to offer us.
For those of us who live in more rural areas, snowmobiling is a great activity that can bring some joy back into winter. Especially if you are the type that loves to explore the wilderness and trek through the woods, snowmobiling is an exhilarating way to spend some time outdoors. However, this hobby should not be taken on without proper safety precautions and training by an experienced rider. According to a study published on the National Center for Biotechnology Information's website:
"Today, snowmobiling has become a popular winter sport enjoyed by more than 2 million people of all ages in North America. However, the modern snowmobile can weigh in excess of 600 pounds and travel at speeds exceeding 90 miles per hour. Each year snowmobile accidents produce approximately 200 deaths and 14,000 injuries. Excess speed, alcohol, driver inexperience, and poor judgment are the leading causes of accidents. Injuries incurred in children and adults often are extremity fractures, but can involve any organ system."
