Reminders!

STAY ON THE MARKED TRAILS AND DO NOT LEAVE GARBAGE BEHIND!

Snowmobile trail usage is NOT guaranteed. The trails exist through the generosity of each and every Landowner. It’s very simple – respect their property or risk losing the trail.

LEAVE THE LOUD EXHAUSTS FOR ORGANIZED EVENTS!

Altered or aftermarket exhaust systems are not only illegal in NYS, but they are annoying to Landowners, the general Public and other snowmobilers and jeopardize the existence of the trail system.

REGISTER YOUR SNOWMOBILE! IT’S THE LAW!

Other than Club Memberships and Fundraisers, this is the ONLY main stream of funding for the clubs and the trail system. COVID DMV grace period is not applicable.

DO NOT CONSUME ALCOHOL AND OPERATE A SNOWMOBILE!

SWI – Snowmobiling While Intoxicated, is a crime similar to DWI in NYS.

RESPECT THE COUNTLESS HOURS/DAYS/WEEKS THAT CLUB VOLUNTEERS DO! HAVE YOU HELPED YOUR CLUB OR THE TRAIL SYSTEM?

The trails you ride are 100% Volunteer created and maintained. Join a club where you ride.

Why Should You Join?

Snowmobile clubs are the reason that snowmobile trails exists. You probably also know that the people in the clubs and grassroots networks are most often the ones who work on varying levels to protect trails and public lands, and your right to ride. Clubs are also a great social outlet for like-minded people.

1. Snowmobile clubs gain land access.
Without the clubs securing land leases and paying insurance costs, no trails would cross private property, and that means the sport as we know it would not exist. All this takes time, effort and money.
2. Snowmobile club members groom the trails.
Sometimes these groomer operators get a token fee for their hard work, but the dollar-per-hour rate is menial at best. Again, these are more of the hidden heroes who spend their time in a slow-moving groomer, tending to the trails. Remember, if you are not a club member you have no right to complain about trail conditions.
3. Snowmobile clubs clear and create trails.
After the land access is received, somebody has to clear away the brush, cut down interfering limbs, haul out trash and smooth the base of the trail. Club members also must build bridges over creeks, rivers and low spots, and that takes a lot of work and a lot of money. This is all done by volunteers who truly love the sport. Without these hidden heroes, the trails would not get cleared, bridges would not get built and most trails would disappear.
4. Snowmobile clubs are great social outlet.
You can attend club rides or trips, go to club meetings, take part in club fundraisers or partake in off-season fun. Belonging to a club gives you a good opportunity to ride with different people, experience different areas and hang out with people who have similar interests.
5. Snowmobile clubs make for a better, safer sport.
Historically, surveys and accident statistics have shown that snowmobile club members have a much lower accident rate than non-club members. Why? Because club members tend to be conscientious, they tend to stress safety and they are aware of safe-riding issues.
