The International Snowmobile Manufacturer Association (ISMA) has launched an awareness campaign to keep riders on the trail, and out of areas they shouldn’t be, commonly referred to as, “Trespassing”.
The effort involves using ambassadors and influencers from all five snowmobile brands (Arctic Cat, Lynx, Polaris, Ski-Doo and Yamaha) to deliver the message of protecting access, protecting landowners and riding where it’s legal.
The power and reach these ambassadors/influencers have through their social channels is incredible. You can join them quickly, and effectively, by broadcasting the Take The Pledge message via your club’s website, newsletter and social platforms. Don’t forget to incorporate The Pledge into your Youth Snowmobile Safety Training. (After all, most of these ambassadors are riding heroes to those youth)
There are videos produced for your usage to help spread this message at: snowmobilerspledge.com.
There are different length videos for you to choose from to match your needs, plus, it helps provide some variety as we view the effort to be a season long endeavor.

The Pledge: I realize illegal off-trail riding is closing access for all snowmobilers and endangering our riding freedoms. This is about more than my personal rights or my wishes – this is about the good of the entire riding community
- I Pledge to ride off-trail only where I know it’s legal and accepted
- I Pledge to check before going off-trail if I don’t know
- I Pledge to protect access for future generations by doing the right thing
- I Pledge to protect access by encouraging those I ride with to also take the Pledge
