The NYSSA trail system operates on a sled registration structure. There is no trail pass required, but all New York State residents and non-residents must register their sleds in New York to ride in New York. Registration is $100 per year through the Department of Motor Vehicles. However, if you join a New York State Snowmobile Association Member Club like ours you will receive the discounted rate of $45 for each sled you register.
Once you have joined our club you will receive a voucher to return with your registration application to receive the discounted registration price. By having one membership you will save $55 for each sled you register in your name, so the more sleds you have the more you can save with a family membership! Another benefit of joining a club rather than paying the full $100 to the DMV is that you know your money is going where you ride. This money goes directly into the trail you ride on rather than a general fund that may be dispersed all over New York. The bottom line is that if you ride in Chautauqua county, join a Chautauqua county club!
