Care Flight—Why You Should be a Member

Snowmobiling is Fun…

…but there are also risks involved.

“Suddenly, my snowmobile hit a hidden rock and I was catapulted into a tree, injuring my back and ribs. I was in so much pain that riding out was not an option. My friends immediately contacted 911 and a Care Flight helicopter was dispatched to come pick me up. I was taken to the emergency room and treated for my injuries.

I can honestly say that I would have thought twice about calling 911 had I not been a CalStar member!”

Hanna Bernard, CalStar member since 2005

CalStar/Care Flight

CalStar and Care Flight are the two main emergency helicopter companies serving our snowmobiling areas in and around Lake Tahoe. If you are a member with one of these companies, each will recognize the other’s membership and apply the appropriate benefits.
