TMAís and Regulations
In order to snowmobile in Vermont your snowmobile must be registered and you must obtain a TMA. A TMA may be purchased from any area Snowmobile Club or Snowmobile Dealer, also many Hotels, Motels, Inn's and Bed and Breakfast and General Stores sell TMAís.
Many of Vermont's snowmobile clubs that are responsible to keeping the snowmobile trails in top condition, groom two or more times a week as conditions allow. Most grooming is done at night to help prevent accidents and traffic problems as they groom at only 5MPH. It is a myth that a heavy snowfall makes smooth trails. A heavy snowfall needs time to let the snow settle before the groomers can do their job. Please let the groomers have the right away, they will get out of your way as soon as safety conditions allow. Thank them for the job that they are doing as many of them are volunteers.
Much of the Snowmobile Trail System is located on private property. Vermont's Snowmobile Clubs must get permission to put a trail on their land and to let you ride their property. Please stay on the marked trail, a landowner can at anytime shut down that trail and you will ruin it for not only yourself but also for others. It takes the members of the area clubs quite a bit of time to re-route a trail if one can be found. Also remember that these members are all volunteers and are like you and me. Be kind to other riders and follow the trail signs.
Vermont's "Northeast Kingdom" awaits you, your family and friends, enjoy our area and the adventure the vast wilderness and we have to offer. Come on up and enjoy your snowmobile tour.
PLEASE RESPECT LANDOWNERS AND STAY ON THE TRAIL!
