Winter is coming, and for much of the North East that means snow! While for some snow is nothing more than a chilly nuisance, winter sports enthusiasts see snowfall as their cue to head out for some fun and adventure. If you enjoy snowmobiling, you are probably already thinking about prepping your sleds in anxious anticipation of the upcoming season. Whether you’re a longtime snowmobile rider or a first timer, here are a few things to remember about snowmobiling in Connecticut.

  • Snowmobiling is permitted on certain state-owned land properties and all state-owned bodies of water.  The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) reserves the right to grant and deny posted, written, conditional permission to the general public for the use of defined trails, so it is important to keep updated about current trail accessibility.
  • There must be at least 6 inches of snowpack to ride. The DEEP will deny permission to use trails which have insufficient snow cover or are unsafe.
  • To operate a snowmobile on public and state property the driver must be over 16 years old and obtain a proper license.
  • In Connecticut, snowmobiles must be registered with the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles to be operated on public land and state facilities. Vehicle identification numbers must be displayed on each side of the front section of the snowmobile as well as the rear plate. The vehicle registration certificate must be carried on the snowmobile when it is being operated, as you would with an automobile.
  • Snowmobile motorists on public or state land are permitted to operate at speeds no greater than 20 miles per hour, or as posted and are not permitted on public highways or roadways.

Snowmobiling can be a fun and exciting winter activity when proper precautions are taken and procedures are followed. But just like any motorized vehicle operation, there are countless risk exposures to property losses, injury and liabilities. That’s why insuring your snowmobile is vitally important.
