OutdoorMN News - Register snowmobiles to keep Minnesota trails well marked and maintained


Recommended Posts

  • 'we have more fun' FishingMN Creators

Minnesota snowmobilers can help protect and preserve their sport by registering their snowmobiles.The revenue from snowmobile registration helps funds local clubs that maintain and groom state trails.

The Department of Natural Resources and the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) are working together to encourage snowmobilers across the state to start the season out right by registering before they ride.

The state of Minnesota requires current registration on snowmobiles. A snowmobile may be registered for trail or nontrail use and is good for three years.

“Before hitting the trail this season take the time to verify that your registration is current,” said Bruce Lawrence, a DNR conservation officer. “Ensure your snowmobile is in good operating order, review safety training, and check local trail maps for any route changes or new trails.”

Minnesota has more than 22,000 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, with more than 21,000 miles maintained by local snowmobile club volunteers. Snowmobile trail maintenance costs are partially funded through snowmobile registrations.

“Registering your snowmobile is important because it provides valuable funding to clubs throughout the state of Minnesota so they can groom and maintain the trails ensuring that you have a fun and safe place to ride your sled,” said MNUSA member Andy Swanson. Donations and volunteer work by snowmobile clubs make up part of the cost and effort it takes to operate Minnesota trails.

Options for registering snowmobiles can be found on the snowmobiling page.

      I had to adjust both my garage doors springs to open my doors further. I was going to mount a light bar on mine for ice fishing but now i don't think I can. You also need watch out for the rope for the release. I closed it in my door and closed the garage as I backed out.

      Great info thanks for all the responses always new things to try!

      I put a light bar on top of my Prowler and almost ripped it off pulling into the garage. Another thing that almost got me was the bar hanging down from the quick release on the garage door chain drive track. Going to grind part of that off. Chains aren't in the cards this year, going to buy a new electric auger at the sports show tomorrow.  Happy wife, happy life 🙂. Hope we don't get all the snow they're talking about, that will really screw things up!

      Well I don’t care about the drought as it’s ice fishing time for me.

      Sorry to hear about your loss. Mntman, That is a lot to deal with.  As for fishing, between work and work at home I did not drop a line in the water after the end of august. Along with that, the water at my dock was getting pretty low with the bottom of the boat rubbing on a few rocks so pulled the boat out and set to removing them…picture are the results. (Where the rocks are is usually 12-14” under water) And yes the old fashion way with shovel and pry bar. Hope you have a merry Christmas and holiday season! The fish will be waiting for us all next spring!

      Any snow we get may help lakes and rivers but won't do much for soil moisture. Most will run off.   But Yea lakes and rivers could use a refill.

      We're still in a major drought.  Any moisture would be beneficial.   It is going to take an epic amount of snow this winter to even make a dent.

      Ya thats the issue my friend has too.  I should have mentioned that earlier but the issue is the garage door, technically not the size of the garage.

      My Polaris Ranger barely fits under my garage door opening.  I have to prop the door open completely so it doesn't hit it.

      Definitely agree with this Clam frost is the real deal I picked some up last year I was running a four pound frost mono and three pound floro leader for my walleye rods last year and a 3 pound mono leader and 2 pound floro leader for pan fish. I set my drag lose so I pull out my line on the first drop this gets rid of all memory making it very sensitive. Sufix makes good stuff to and I love all their lines for summer time but in the winter I would give clam the slight edge.
