Plan ahead for snowmobile season

Salt Lake City – As snow begins to accumulate, Utah State Parks managers remind young riders and their parents that state-required youth snowmobile education courses are available online at

Utah law requires youth eight to 16 to complete a snowmobile education course before operating a machine on public lands or trails. It is illegal for any child under age eight to operate an OHV on public land. Anyone over age 16 without a valid driver’s license must also complete the course to legally operate an OHV on public land.

Course is $30 and upon successful completion, a temporary certificate can be printed immediately.
