Thank you riders and clubs for a really good 2013 snowmobile season. Good spring riding still exists in higher elevations and in northern NH; specifically areas around Pittsburg, Diamond Pond, Errol and Jericho Mountain State Park. Check local club websites for updates through April. Grooming will likely end in all areas after this weekend but riding will be open in some places as long as snow remains. Riding at Boundary Pond and Deer Mountain areas in Pittsburg anticipated through most of April.
Thank you again for registering your snowmobile and supporting the local clubs. Your registration sticker is the only source of funding for trail grooming and construction.
