Reciprocal snowmobile weekend is Jan. 30 - Feb. 1

CONCORD — Snowmobile enthusiasts will have a chance to explore some new territory Friday through Saturday, January 30-February 1, during the New Hampshire-Vermont-Maine reciprocal snowmobile weekend. 
“This weekend is one of the highlights of the winter for many resident and non-resident riders,” said N.H. Fish and Game Capt. John Wimsatt, who coordinates Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle enforcement and education for New Hampshire. “We have a good base of snow on the ground through much of the state, and the big snowstorm this week will kick the snowmobile season off in earnest.”
The following are the ground rules for the weekend: First, all snowmobiles legally registered to ride in Vermont and Maine will be able to operate on New Hampshire trails during the three-day open weekend. To be legally registered in Vermont, snowmobiles must display, pursuant to Vermont law, a valid Vermont Association of Snow Travelers, Inc. Trails Maintenance Assessment, also known as the Trails Pass. All other New Hampshire laws and rules regarding the operation of snowmobiles must be adhered to, such as speed limits, youth operation standards, etc.

Second, all snowmobiles legally registered in New Hampshire will be able to operate in Vermont and Maine during the reciprocal weekend. All other Vermont and Maine snowmobile laws and rules must be complied with, including Vermont’s mandatory liability insurance, safety education certification (if born after 7/1/1983), and youth operation requirements.
