2. encourage riders to participate in available snowmobile educational programs to make riders aware of the inherent risks associated with the sport;
3. equip trail maintenance vehicles that they operate with such warning implements or devices as specified by law;
4. hold training sessions each season, for operators of trail maintenance equipment concerning the proper operation of such vehicles;
5. provide education for all other personnel charged with trail maintenance, inspection or patrol duties as to methods to be used for summoning aid in emergencies; and
6. maintain for public use trail area information showing the following: (a) the location of state designated trails; and (b) the status of each trail as open or closed. Nothing in this section shall create a legal duty or obligation beyond that which may already exist.
