Where to Check The Status of Snowmobile Trails

Posted by Christopher Weiland on

It’s the three best words in snowmobiling, “TRAILS ARE OPEN!” Enough snow has come down, and we’ve made it past deer season and fall harvest for our prized trails to be open to the best sport on the planet.  

 

So what’s the best way to find out about trail statuses? There are many great resources out there to help you on your quest to see when and where you can ride.

 

  1.  State tourism sites. These sites are great for tracking trail status on a large scale. Some even report the overall conditions; they tend to be based on snowpack depth rather than overall grooming. The sites are best used in the view of a state on the macro level and determine where you want to head. A lot of times, they depend on clubs input, and some clubs are late to input trail status, so you’ll want to take these with a grain of salt. Not many states have them, but when they do, it’s a great tool.

2. If your state doesn’t have any status maps or you want to get more details on a specific location, you’ll want to go down to the county level and find the club to get trail status. Many of the more organized clubs will have websites and Facebook pages to update you on trails and conditions. If they have neither, you’ll want to find a snow phone if possible.
