I think you have to look at this very closely.
1. If the BSA banned ATVing, think about the reasons
-Hitting trees/other objects at 30+ mph
-The potential for inadequate supervision, even with many leaders, the
group can get spread out and something could happen
2. Have a very well thought out emergency plan.
-As a member of a Minnesota fire department I've seen many fatal
snowmobile accidents involving youth. Many times they were with their
parents or other adults, but accidents still happen many times miles away
-Do you have experienced Emergency Medical Personnel? EMTs are good and
proper safety and first aid equipment are a must.
3. Ask your council what they think. Even thought it is not on the list of
banned activities, do you really believe it is safe for you scouts and does
is promote the values of no trace, environmental protection and wildlife
