Can you snowmobile from home?


Recommended Posts

I've always been fortunate to be able to ride from home. When we lived in NH I did have to wait for the lake to freeze to access the trails. Here in VT I have access before the lakes freeze, but I can miss a bunch of crappy trails once the lakes freeze up. 

Can you ride from home or do you need to trailer to ride?

Looking out my front window.  Trail runs down the lake

No sledding near my house! Bought a camp in the UP and keep the sleds there. The trail is a block away and boondocking is right outside the door. 

Season starts when I can ride from home and ends when I can't.

We can leave from our house. Go down to the end of our dead end street and access the trail through the neighbors (a good friend and sledder) property when we have enough snow. This didn't happen much last year.

I have to go about 100 yards on the side of a town road that's open to snowmobiles to get to the trail that leads to the lake. If the lakes aren't frozen yet then I have to ride the edge of the road for about 3/4 of a mile to get to the trail.

Right across my front yard and down about 500' of my own access trail and I'm on NH corridor 5. Turn left and its 2 miles to town/gas. Turn right and it's into some of the best trails in New England.

1/4 mile from my house is the trail, my street is a designated snowmobile route in and out of town, and I maintain and groom this section for our club so I have it made when we get snow

I could ride out of the house like the neighbor does. It's just a short run through the local high school and public school, but I don't want to damage our garage floor with the studs and carbides. I ride out of our shop on the other side of town, just a few hundred meters to the trail. Plus the sleds thawed off and I can clean it more easily.

I can ride from my place in S WI to Ontario CA, if we have snow. Trails around here never opened last year. 

 

My favorite though is to trailer 1200 miles to the Rocky Mtns.

I have to trailer to get to any type of snowmobile trail, and I have to ride illegally to get to legal ditch riding.

Same here 

 

But there are lots of country roads, fields and golf courses out be me. Plenty of riding if there's good snow
