The Top 3 violations in Logan Canyon.
 
Anyone 17 and younger must wear a helmet when operating or being a passenger on a snowmobile, ATV or motorcycle.
 
Off highway vehicles must be registered before transporting or operating on public roads or land.  not carry them in your bag and think that is good enough.  It’s not!!!  The decals will stick on the tunnel and hood very well if the machine is warm when you stick them on.  Placing them on the belly pan will get ripped off when riding in deep snow.
 
Anyone (Utah resident or non-resident) between the age of 8 and 15 must posses Utah Safety Certificate to operate a snowmobile, ATV, or Motorcycle in Utah. To sign up for a classes at www.stateparks.utah.gov
