In the winter, the North Country becomes the snowmobiling capital of New England, with more than 700 miles of groomed snowmobiling trails that weave through spectacularly beautiful wilderness and provide visitors with endless hours of winter fun and adventure.

Each night, the area’s snowmobile trails are groomed to perfection by local clubs, which also maintain several warming huts on the trails. Thanks to the support of local communities, North Country snowmobilers enjoy convenient access to restaurants, stores, gas stations and, in many cases, even their motel rooms and cabins.

The North Country’s network of snowmobile trails also connects to trails in Vermont and Maine, allowing visitors to snowmobile for days at a time without riding the same trail twice.

If you don’t own a snowmobile, that’s no problem.

Many places can rent you a snowmobile and necessary gear, including Bear Rock Adventures, Tall Timber Lodge, Lopstick Lodge and Let’s Ride Rentals.

A great time for snowmobilers to visit the region is the beginning of March, when the North Country hosts the popular annual snowmobiling festival the GoNorth Snofest. This fun family event is a wonderful chance to check out new snowmobile models, view antique snowmobiles, ride on groomers and enjoy other fun activities.

If you’ve never snowmobiled, try it in the North Country this winter. It’s such a fun and exhilarating experience, it’ll have you looking forward to winter all year long.
