Remember, you must be a member of a New York State snowmobile club before you register your sled, to pay $45 per
machine, or you will be charged $100 per machine at time of registration. If you register your sled at the DMV, that
county keeps the money for trails. If you register on line, the state keeps the money. Please help keep local trail
money local, and use your local DMV office.

1/2 The trails are open

We are able to open the southern end of our trail system
This mean Cattaraugus and Chautauqua County trails are open, with
limited conditions, which is trails south of Gowanda.

Everything north of Gowanda is still closed.
The main reason is a bridge on the main trail has washed out and we are
working on a reroute as we speak. Without a reroute, the trail is cut off, so
you can't get anywhere anyway.  Don't ride on closed trails, as this is

Due to gas line construction, S-44-B the Fox Ave. to Wagner Rd.
Secondary trail may not open this season.

Check the trail tab for individual trail conditions.

Don't forget to sell your gun raffle tickets. You can turn them in at the
January or the February meeting. The drawing is at the February meeting.
This is our main fund raiser, so we can update our trails and equipment, so
please sell all your tickets.

    Just a reminder..... A snowmobile club is a 365 day club. Help is needed all year round, so
    you can enjoy it in the winter. A big THANKS to our club officers and leaders for all you do.
    Without  you, we would not have trails to ride. We must also thank all of the
    landowners, for the privilege to use their property, for our enjoyment.
