Trails Are Open For The Season!
Trails have been opened by the Bureau of Trails as of 12/15/17.
Expect early season conditions. Rocks, stumps, open water, ice, and blow-downs. The 8-10″ of snow we received as of mid December is light powder that will pack down. Railroad beds and roads will be decent riding but woodland trails will be rough with many obstacles. We won’t be grooming until we get snow with enough body to fill the holes and water bars. Be careful!
Jefferson HiLanders Club Meetings
Club meetings are usually held at 7PM on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
129 Presidential Highway, Jefferson, NH
All are welcome and encouraged to attend!
If there are any changes they will be posted to the “Club Calendar”
You can no longer (at this time) register your sled or sleds directly through NHSA.
So it’s back to the old way of filling out a club application, submitting it to a club, and waiting for us to mail (or email) a Voucher to you as proof of belonging to a recognized snowmobile club.
The Voucher is the same type you received online last season except that we (the club) must do it rather than logging in to NHSA to print one. At least until further notice…

The law states that a Groomer has the right of way. Common sense says DO NOT PASS A MOVING GROOMER!!!
RECOMMENDED PRACTICE FOR PASSING A GROOMER approved by NHSA map and trails committee
- FOR ONCOMING SLEDS: The sled should pull off the trail and allow the groomer to pass by.
- OVERTAKING A GROOMER: The groomer operator should find a safe place to pull over and stop. The rider can then check to see if they can safely pass the groomer.
NOTE: The groomer operator will not signal a sled to pass.
Reason: Each rider must take responsibility for passing the Groomer.
NEW HAMPSHIRE STATUTES GOVERNING PASSING A TRAIL GROOMER.
