7th Annual Adirondack Trails Conference

There will be DEC, APA and NYSSA and local government officials under one roof at this gathering. This is an excellent time to ask questions about anything snowmobiling in the Adirondacks, especially in regards to how the State is going to handle snowmobile access to the former Finch, Pruyn lands.

Over the past several years, cooperation between the snowmobiling community and the State has improved dramatically.

It remains true that the Adirondacks have the most restrictive laws governing snowmobile trail construction and maintenance in New York State. But DEC has demonstrated a willingness to help us, within the framework of the rules. We may not get everything we want, but the needle is pointing the right direction.

I have been to the previous two trail conferences and gathered some great information each time. The conversations with groomer operators and fellow snowmobilers is fun. It’s a great reminder that snowmobiling is indeed a 12 month sport when you take the preparation into account.

A prior commitment will prevent me from attending this year’s trail conference. But if you can make it, I’d recommend going to the conference and meet some of the players involved in Adirondack snowmobiling.
