The stuff dreams are made of
The Adirondacks is THE place to snowmobile in New York state. Over groomed and backcountry trails, experience the heart-pounding exhilaration of snowmobiling through a winter wonderland on some of the finest trails in the northeast. Boasting more than 750 miles of free snowmobile trails for your riding pleasure, this region of the Adirondacks is home to the biggest trail system in New York.
Pack up the gear, the sleds, the family, and tell your friends to meet you on the trail - vacation is waiting, and so are we!
We know after a day on the trails you want a hot shower, a hot meal, and a hot toddy to warm those cold bones and get you ready for the next trail. Many local businesses offer affordable lodging packages for snowmobilers, so you can get away and explore the backcountry at your leisure.
You're thinking snow, tuning up the sled, and you are ready for adventure! Whether your next snowmobile ride is a weekend tour or an afternoon jaunt, use these tips to make your next outing as safe and fun as can be. The better prepared you are in the woods, the better the adventure!

Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK
The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
