Last year, New York State had a total of 115,978 snowmobiles registered. That was a decrease of almost 500 sleds from the previous year.
The last few seasons have been very unpredictable for the snowmobile rider. Our winters have seen plenty of snow and thaws. Many people wait to see how the winter looks before they even think of joining a Club or registering their sleds.
This practice severely hurts the local Clubs. Early Club memberships and registrations are vital to a Club receiving the funding they need to start their pre-season trail work. Clubs need to get out early, before the snow flies, and start clearing brush from their trails. Bridge work may need to be done, trails may have to be rerouted and signs have to be posted.
All of this takes money to complete, money that many Clubs don't have or receive until people start joining and registering their snowmobiles.
Please join our Club and register your sled early this year. Help us to provide you with an enjoyable riding experience on trails as soon as the season begins.
Trails are scheduled to Open on December 17th, 2014!!

So what will this winter be like?
The Farmer's Almanac is stating that winter will be colder than normal, with the coldest periods in late December, throughout January, and in early February. Precipitation will be below normal in the east and near normal in the west. Snowfall will be above normal in most of the region, with the snowiest periods in mid-December, early and mid-January, and early February.
According to AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok, "We will see some dry weather in the Northeast, barring any tropical systems, in September and October but in November it will get wet," Pastelok said.
Following a soaking November for Northeastern residents, El Niño will make its debut early this winter, fueling early winter snow across the area.
"December could get kind of wild due to the very active southern jet stream that is going to provide the moisture for bigger snowstorms," Pastelok said. "The Northeast could have a couple of big storms in December and early January."
I guess that we will just have to wait and see...
