A snowmobile travels a newly-groomed trail on Monday, Dec. 31, 2012 in East Montpelier, Vt. The big snow is giving a big boost to snowmobilers across Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Parts of the region have received two feet of snow and more over the last several days, giving a boost to the sport that was hampered last season by a near-snowless winter.

Reciprocal Snowmobile Weekend this coming Friday to Sunday allows all legally registered Maine snowmobiles to be operated in New Hampshire and Vermont without being registered in those states.

At the same time, snowmobiles legally registered in New Hampshire and Vermont can be operated in Maine without a current Maine registration. In Maine alone, snowmobilers can explore more than 13,000 miles of interconnected, groomed and marked trails.

The Maine Warden Service reminds snowmobilers to ride with caution at all times. Maine Warden Col. Joel Wilkinson also advises riders to pay close attention to ice conditions on all Maine waterways, especially when traveling at night.
