Aren’t local snowmobile trails paid for by the state?
No, only a portion of the funding comes from the state. About 50% of the funds for grooming are based upon local fundraising. And, the state funds come directly from the number of snowmobiles registered, and these sleds must be registered in North Dakota to count.
How much does it cost to groom the trail?
Grooming costs average $10-12 per mile. Even if the person running the groomer is a volunteer, the costs add up.
Are there other ways to help?
The club can definitely use your help in other ways, such as trail signing and other activities. As a club member, you’ll receive the club’s newsletter, which will you let you know of club events.
