SALT LAKE CITY — If you’re planning to do any snowmobiling this winter, take a look at the Utah Avalanche Center’s “Knowledge Is Powder” video first.

The nine-minute video is aimed at snowmobilers, but also provides useful information for non-motorized winter sports enthusiasts.

“The video opens with jaw-dropping snowmobiling scenes, transitions into a sobering avalanche accident, then finishes with the 5 avalanche safety points, which have been adopted in North America for both motorized and non-motorized snow sports to help backcountry users get the goods and come home safely,” a statement from UAC said.

Use the video player above to watch “Knowledge Is Powder.”

Officials with the Utah Avalanche Center came to the FOX 13 News Studio Friday to discuss snowmobile safety, see the video below for their interview.
