Mobility Education (Snowmobiles)
Benny has been one of The Peak’s primary mobility instructors from the beginning. Although listed as the primary Snowmobile Instructor for the Mobility Division, he works hand-in-hand with Randy Santifer providing expert instruction on all motorized forms of backcountry transportation. In addition to the work he does with The Peak, he also owns and manages Benny’s Power Toys in Butte, Montana. Benny’s is the place to go if you are getting your snowmobile ready to race or if you just need some fuel system and suspension calibrations, and high altitude clutching.
Benny’s enthusiasm for snowmobiling is infectious and his lifelong love of the sport is very evident. He has been the president of two snowmobile clubs and is heavily involved with the snowmobile safety program in Montana. He has been a Montana Snowmobile Safety Instructor for over 14 years and also certifies new instructors for the Montana Instructors Program. He conducts numerous Snowmobile Safety Certification classes for the community and has trained hundreds of the Peak’s clients. Since 2006, he has also been an American Avalanche Institute- Level One Avalanche Instructor.
When the snow melts, Benny shifts his focus to motorcycles and ATVs. Benny’s hard work as the President of the Mining City Trail Riders has fostered great working relationships with the USFS and BLM. His dedication to safe and responsible trail riding has kept many riding areas open.
