Failing to exercise reasonable care when operating a snowmobile can result in liability for any collisions that result. Snowmobile operators may be at fault in a collision for any number of reasons including but not limited to poor skill and intoxication. Reasonable snowmobile riders would not travel in crowded areas if they were unfamiliar with the machine operate the vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs or travel at excessively high speeds. If the owner of the snowmobile is different from the person driving it the owner may also be liable for damages.
We cant all be James Bond or a professional snowmobile racer but many of us can enjoy the highly technical and exciting sleds manufactured by the Bombardier Company. Ski Doo snowmobiles continue to rise in popularity. The company offers special models of snowmobiles that can only be ordered in the spring. These early ordering programs have become quite popular enabling a rider to be the first in line for the coveted new models and designs. You can expect to see many Ski Doo snowmobiles this winter zipping along freshly groomed trails and fresh powder.
A heavy snow can conceal large rocks or felled trees beneath a seemingly uniform surface causing damage to the machine and a loss of control. Property owners have a duty to keep their property free of latent defects although the property owner must know or have reason to know about the particular defect and that people will be crossing the property on a snowmobile. What constitutes constructive knowledge varies by jurisdiction. Manufacturer Liability In some limited cases the manufacturer of the snowmobile may be liable for damages.
Gasoline has highly volatile components that tend to evaporate over time. The less volatile components in the fuel cause the gasoline to burn less effectively. The result is poor engine performance. In other words your engine may still start and run but it probably wont run as well. Not only will the gasoline degrade over time but when a snowmobile sits for long periods of time without a protective snowmobile cover water and condensation can enter the gas tank. Water of course does not work too well as a fuel in the internal combustion engine of a snowmobile.
