Snowmobile Season Begins Saturday, But Some Trails Could Use a Little More Snow

Chris Jensen for NHPR

Saturday marks the start of snowmobiling season in New Hampshire.


It's still early, though, so out of the more than 80 snowmobile clubs in New Hampshire, only about 11 have trails that are ready for riding.


Steve Hight is with the Littleton Off Road Riders. He says wind storms in the spring led to some downed trees in the area, so only some of their trails are open this weekend.


"It's a very unique and a very beautiful trail system, we're just a little ways and a few inches of snow away,” Hight says. “We will overcome."


The Division of State Parks says most of the open trails are currently in the North Country.


There are some 7,000 miles of snowmobile trails in the state.
