NYSSA-November 30, 2020 –
*There is significant snow in the forecast for some parts of New York State, but snowmobile trails are NOT open yet. State and local trails do not open until AFTER the hunting seasons end AND the local clubs have inspected and officially declared their trail system as “open”. Check trail status gor HVR at www.hillandvalleyriders.com
* We encourage respect to those property owners who graciously allow trails on their lands. Dont ruin the relationship we’ve built by going on closed trails.
* There’s no frozen ground, early season conditions can, and do, include rocks, ruts, unfrozen water holes, fallen tree limbs, among other hazards which may be lying just below the freshly fallen snow.
* Every rider is reminded that your sled must be properly registered and insured for liability to ride off your own property in NYS. Safe snowmobiling requires the sharpest of senses and th
* NYSSA and all 220 snowmobile clubs encourage zero alcohol consumption while snowmobiling.
