Mainer's with registered sleds can adventure into New Hampshire for free, on a specially designated weekend.
A special weekend in March allows for anyone with registered sleds to hit the trails in New Hampshire, without purchasing a a registration from the state. March 3 through 5, sleds with valid registration from another state or Canadian province do not need to obtain a New Hampshire registration while operating in New Hampshire.
The free weekend coincides with Maine's free snowmobile weekend, March 3-5. On these days only, a non-resident can ride the thousands of miles of trails throughout the state without having to purchase a Maine snowmobile registration. All sleds must have valid registration from another state or province.
The weekend is designed to introduce more snow sledders to Maine's vast system of snowmobile trails. The state has more than 14,000 miles of interconnected, groomed and marked trails. Riders are reminded to stay on marked routes, as 95% of these trails are on private land.
Free snowmobiling weekends are busy days on the trails throughout the state. Sledders are reminded to ride with caution at all times. All snowmobilers are encouraged to read through the Maine Snowmobile Quick Reference Guide.
If you need to register your snowmobile, you can do so online. Registration fees provide funding to build and maintain the Maine trail system, and help support snowmobile clubs and volunteers who work to maintain trails.
