Well its official, the trail permit prices have doubled here in michigan. We will be looking at $20 per sled, plus the usual registration fee's. I dont have a proble at all with this fee, cuz it gets our trails nice and smooooooooth. But i can understand why my dad is argueing about it, he only rides his sled from our back door out to the ice shanty never even riding on a trail. I dont want to start an arguement, but if he doesn't ride the trails why does he need a "trail permit"? Oh yeah, and all you outta staters that plan to ride in Michigan, you can also plan on forking over the $20 so you can ride. permit prices are also expected to go up again next year to $25 and the following year to $30

Stupid, stupid, stupid! Minnesota is like the worst for this kinda stuff. All they want it money and more money. Even for gas, they shouldn't charge snowmobiles for road tax! At least money goes to maintaining trails. I would say Minnesota has some of the best roads and trails from all the taxes.

im unsure of any tril permits here in iowa, most of our trails are in the state parks, or the ditches where local sled clubs talke care of the grooming, i do know that minnesota differs from iowa in the way sleds are registered, we actually get a title(like a car) and mn only give out a little card

yeah i know its not all that expensive, but the fact that michigan has the most registered snowmobiles in the U.S. should make a little bit of difference. Plus we charge the out of state snowmobiles the same price and also charge the canadians too.

???? Pay to ride on a trail? I'm I hearing you right.
OK there are not that many trails here. Probably only 200 miles groomed in the whole state. But these are taken care of by the local clubs.
We do register our machines $10 for 2 years but thats about it. Most trails lead to killer back country riding.
I guess that the price that has to be paid for living in the lower 48.
There are 34 million acres of land open to sledding in AK to bad we don't have decent access to 95% of it. I would be willing to pay a little to have trails to some of that acreage.
Just not what they pay in NH.

I refuse to answer this question on the grounds it might incriminate me!

Registration includes any trail permit costs. That is an out of state cost. In state is $47 a sled.
