Snowmobiling is one of the state's most popular winter activities. More than 3,000 miles of
groomed trails are provided through the Winter Recreation Program, in cooperation with
federal, county and local agencies, ski areas, snowmobile clubs and private landowners.
The Winter Recreation Program provides Sno-Parks, cleared parking areas for vehicles in
close proximity to groomed and/or backcountry trails. There are two types of Sno-Parks,
those for snowmobiles and those for non-motorized sports. A handful offer both types of activities.
Remember that Sno-Park plowing cannot be done without highway plowing. For this reason,
under certain weather conditions, some Sno-Parks may not be cleared for vehicle parking until
other areas have been cleared. Keep in mind it is against the law to park on highway
All funds from snowmobile registrations and a percentage of the state gasoline tax are used
solely for snowmobiling purposes, including:
- Snow removal and sanitation in designated parking lots
- Trail grooming
- Equipment purchases
- Safety education and training
- Trail signing and maps
- Program administration
