ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — For the next two weekends, snowmobile registration fees for out-of-state and Canadian snowmobilers are waived, as long as the sleds are legally registered in their home states or provinces.

Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the move in an effort to increase winter tourism in New York and promote the more than 10,000 miles of snowmobile trails in the state.

She also announced $4.2 million for trail maintenance.

Check the websites of area snowmobile clubs for information on trail conditions. The New York State Snowmobile Association website has information about snowmobiling and snowmobile clubs. Maps of the state snowmobile trail network are available on New York State Parks’ website here.
