Things to know:
North Dakota has 14 state snowmobile trails, which are maintained by members of Snowmobile North Dakota. Trails are open from December 1 through April 1, providing that the trail has a minimum of four inches of packed snow.
Many of the trails are on trail easements through private land. Snowmobilers are reminded to respect private property and remain on marked trail segments.

The registration fee is $40 for a two-year period, which includes a $5 registration fee and $35 trail tax which is used for the state trail system. The fee must be paid on odd-numbered years.
