Welcome to Snowmobiling In Chautauqua New York

The Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club was founded in 1968 for the purpose of making a local trail system that was both safe and enjoyable. Located in the western-most part of New York State where the average annual snowfall exceeds 250 inches, its volunteers maintain over 200 miles of scenic trails. These are linked to local service businesses and other clubs in the county. Our clubhouse, located on Hannum Rd. in Mayville, NY, is available to all 2300+ CLSC members and has comfort facilities as well as a mini kitchen.

Our club currently operates 9 Class “A” Groomers and expends countless volunteer hours preparing the trails for snow. There are fun family activities from dinner rides to bonfires throughout the season for everyone. We invite you to join our group of active snowmobile enthusiasts and get to know us and make this your personal trail system! Click Here To Join Our Club

Club Meetings are held the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays at 7:30 pm September through April, and the 1st Wednesday May through August. We welcome everyone to attend these meetings.

Trails are still in great shape after the warmup early in the week. The expected rain fell south of our area and we are still setup with colder temps going into the weekend. Temps will get near the above freezing mark this weekend and climb north next week. This could be the last real good weekend for riding so be sure to get out enjoy while we still have base! Because of some thawing, corners may be icy so use caution this weekend. There will be lots of newer people on the trail system because of the registration free weekend.

While CLSC holds a position of never riding on the lake due to unforeseen dangers, there has been an advisory issued for all sleds to stay off the lake. Due to the heavy amounts of snow, ice conditions are poor in spots with very deep snow and slush. We have already lost multiple sleds so please don’t let it be a life we lose next!

Free Registration Weekend (3/7 - 3/8) / Boy Scouts Pancake Breakfast (3/7)
The free snowmobiling event will take place on the weekend of March 7-8. During this weekend any out of state rider can ride in NY registration free so long as you have insurance and valid registration from your home state. Please use this opportunity to visit local businesses on the trail and see what this great state has to offer during the winter season.

We have decided not to have our Annual All You Can Eat Pancake Breakfast at the clubhouse. Instead we are supporting the Boy Scouts who are having their breakfast at the Chautauqua Suites. Their event will be held on 3/7 from 7-11AM. Exit C-4 Mayville at Webb's sign and continue to the Suites! Snowmobiles Welcome.
