(Concord, NH) Thanks to the snowstorm yesterday, the New Hampshire Bureau of Trails reports that the snowmobile trail system in the state is in good shape for the upcoming holiday weekend.
“The trails certainly needed some new snow to keep them in good riding shape,” stated Chris Gamache, Chief of the Bureau of Trails. “With the addition of 6 to 20 inches of new snow the riding should be good to great throughout the state. Clubs will be working hard to have the trails ready for riders and New Hampshire businesses, which cater to snowmobilers, will be excited to see the trails back to life."
The local volunteer snowmobile clubs and the Bureau of Trails have been working hard to get trails ready for this winter's riding season. Clubs in the Great North Woods region are reporting most of their trail systems open for riding. Snow totals in central and southern New Hampshire are now similar to those up north, with ample riding opportunities.
Riders should plan to find early season riding conditions and be mindful of changing trail status, water bars, and some downed trees. Riders should check local club websites
for area information and the Bureau of Trails website, www.nhtrails.org
, for updated trail conditions
on Tuesdays and Fridays.
