Snowmobile Hand Signals and What They Mean

The signals depicted in the following chart should be part of every riders vocabulary. If you have a new rider in your group, be sure to explain each signal and proper sled etiquette for the safety of the whole group. Even seasoned riders should refresh their memory before heading out.
 
SLOWING: 
The left arm is extended out and down from the side of the body, with a downward flapping motion of the hand to signal warning or caution.
RIGHT TURN: 
The left arm is raised at shoulder height, with the elbow bent and the forearm vertical. The palm of the hand is flat.
ONCOMING SLEDS:
The left arm is raised at shoulder height with the elbow bent, the forearm vertical and the wrist bent. The arm should move from left to right over the head, pointing to the right of the trail.
LEFT TURN: 
The left arm is extended straight out from the shoulder, pointed in the direction of the turn.
SLEDS FOLLOWING: 
The arm is raised with the elbow bent and the thumb pointing backward. The arm should move in a "hitchhiking" motion from the front to the back, over the shoulder.
LAST SLED IN LINE: 
The left forearm, with the palm flat, slashes repeatedly out and down at a 45-degree angle.
