Snowmobile Conditions

February 24, 2017

Riders should always be cautious and ready for changing trail conditions. Some reminders due to the weather we’ve been having lately: anticipate possible rising of water near reservoirs, brooks, rivers, etc.; expect icy trails, especially in the corners; watch for exposed rocks, roots, etc.; allow adequate stopping room between sleds. Check here for specific trail information on where you are planning to ride.
.
Warm weather has affected bodies of water throughout the state. Please Stay Safe on the Ice.

A reminder that in NH the maximum speed limit is 45 mph. Depending upon trail conditions it can be less, so pay attention to signage!

Riders should never ride behind wildlife – pull over to the side and turn off your sled – wait until the wildlife exits the trail system before resuming.

Northern NH

With the warm temps we have been experiencing this week riders should expect spring like conditions in lower elevation areas; higher elevation trails are faring better. Grooming is occurring where and when conditions allow. Please remember to stay to the right of the trail and ride within your means.
