Things to know:
There are over 10,000 miles of funded/groomed trails in New York. Snowmobiles must be insured. Helmets required for everyone. Some roads and road shoulders are open to snowmobiles. All snowmobiles must be registered in New York. Registration Fee: $45 Resident – $45 Non-resident
The 260 Clubs and County Associations that make up the New York State Snowmobiling Association (NYSSA) invite you to enjoy New York’s 10,500 miles of trail this winter. Areas of our state have snow cover between early December through the end of March. Individual areas will open their trails on different dates based on hunting seasons and other factors, so please check with a local club for the most up-to-date information.
We hope that all riders will periodically review the New York State Snowmobiler’s Guide. A FREE printed copy of the handbook is available from the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

The New York Statewide snowmobile trail system operates on a sled registration system. There is no trail pass required, but all New York State residents and non-residents must register their sleds in New York to ride in New York.
Registration is $100 (one year), commencing from September 1.
Registration is $45 for riders who join a New York State Snowmobile Association Member Club and obtain a registration voucher. Anyone may join a New York Club.
Prior to registering a sled, you must have paid sales tax on your sled, unless you are a non-resident. Non residents are exempt from the New York state sales tax requirement for snowmobiles.
You can register at any Department of Motor Vehicle Office throughout the state. Registration renewals are commonly processed by mail.
Please see the Registration page for more details, including registration forms and Department of Motor Vehicle Office locations and hours.
