1.Katahdin Region of Maine

With Mt. Katahdin as the permanent backdrop, this region is referred to as “Maine’s Wilderness Jewel.” Snowmobiling is the favorite winter sport in the area, and local businesses offer snowmobile parking, repair shops, and organized rides. The area has more than 400 miles of pristinely groomed trails, which are maintained by dedicated volunteers from snowmobile clubs and the community of snowmobiling enthusiasts.


2.Pittsburg, New Hampshire

This town has a higher population of moose than people, but boasts a snowmobile club with more than 4,400 members who come from all over the country to enjoy over 200 miles of snowmobile trails. The club’s trails, which connect to Maine, Vermont, and Canada, take you through thousands of acres of undeveloped forest in an area well known for having some of the deepest snow in the country.


3.Old Forge, New York

Located in the heart of the Adirondacks, Old Forge receives an annual average snowfall of 177 inches. Experience the scenic beauty of the Adirondack Mountains and the extensive network of lakes while riding in the area. Consider visiting in December during the annual Snodeo event.


4.Newberry, Michigan

Nestled in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are over 200 miles of groomed snow- laden trails. Venture north to the majestic ice sculptures of Tahquamenon Falls and west toward Grand Marais and the Pictured Rocks. While in the area, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore three Great Lakes—Huron, Michigan, and Superior.


5.Eagle River, Wisconsin

Named the snowmobile capital of the world, Eagle River is home to the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame and annual Eagle River World Championship Snowmobile Derby. Local snowmobile clubs groom more than  500 miles of trails, which wind through Wisconsin’s Northwoods and across glistening frozen lakes.


6.Brainerd Lakes, Minnesota

Boasting an incredible 1,200-mile network of snowmobile trails and more than 500 frozen lakes, the Brainerd Lakes area offers many opportunities to enjoy a relaxing and scenic ride. Travel the Paul Bunyan Trail, Minnesota’s longest continuously paved state trail, which spans 120 picturesque miles.


7. West Yellowstone, Montana

With elevations upwards of 2,000 feet and an average snowfall of over 150 inches a year, West Yellowstone is a snowmobiler’s dream. Natural wonders, such as mountain ranges, volcanic bubbling pots, snow-covered trees, and moonscape displays, surround the trails. Be sure not to miss the buffalo, Old Faithful Geyser Basin, or the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.


8.Jackson Hole, Wyoming

The Jackson Hole area offers an array of snowmobile rentals and guided tours through hundreds of miles of trails amongst remarkable mountains, forests, and open bowls. The Gros Ventre River area provides great wildlife viewing and a gorgeous hot springs pool.


9.Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Blanketed with an average of 347 inches of “Champagne Powder,” this is a sled head’s paradise with challenging terrain throughout the Routt National Forest. Be sure to ease up on the throttle and take in the rewarding views that extend beyond the trees and wintery meadows.


10.Stanley, Idaho

Surrounded by three magnificent mountain ranges with peaks over 10,000 feet, there are sights to behold in every direction. Cruise effortlessly through 185 miles of groomed trails in an area that exceeds 220 inches of snowfall annually.


Regardless of where you choose to ride, always follow trail etiquette. Ride in a manner that is safe, legal, and respectful toward your fellow riders and the environment. Happy trails to you!

Even if you have a safe vehicle and the latest technology, things can go wrong and you could end up stranded. How are you going to get tow service? How much is it going to cost? Roadside assistance could be your hero.

When purchasing a vehicle, knowing if it was damaged in a flood may not be as easy as you’d think. It can take months before the damage appears and is reported—if reported at all. In the meantime, some of these marred vehicles are being resold without disclosure of prior water damage and carry the hidden risk of high costs down the road.
