Trespass to Private and Public Property
It is illegal to operate a snowmobile on a private property without the owner’s or lessee’s consent. Landowners are not required to post signs on their property.
- The most common violation is cutting corners on trails crossing private property. Always follow the trail markers. Trespassing closes trails, creates hardships for clubs and HURTS EVERYONE.
- It is illegal to operate a snowmobile on forest nursery planting areas or public lands which are posted or reasonably identified as an area of forest plan reproduction.
- It is illegal to operate on a ski area, slide or skating area except at marked locations or after stopping and yielding the right of way.
- It is illegal to operate on or across a cemetery, burial ground, school or church without the consent of the owner. You may not operate a snowmobile on an operating airport or landing facility without consent. You may not operate a snowmobile on Native American lands without the consent of the tribal governing body.
Liability of Landowners
Landowners who allow snowmobile trails to cross their property are not required to keep the premises safe for recreational activities, to inspect the property, or to give warning of an unsafe condition: Be mindful of your actions at all times while riding a snowmobile. Private property owners provide most of the trails you ride on free of charge. Their continued support keeps YOUR trails open!
