NYSSA Encourages Snowmobilers to Prepare for Season and Join Local Clubs
As snow falls, NYSSA reminds snowmobilers to take action for 2013 Season
PINE BUSH, NY - Snow has begun to fall in parts of New York State, and snowmobilers will begin getting excited for the upcoming season. The New York State Snowmobilers Association (NYSSA) encourages snowmobilers not to wait until trails are declared open to join their local NYSSA Club. Snowmobile season does not officially begin until after big game hunting season, and riders are reminded to check with their local clubs at that time to ensure trails have been opened.
“The snow forecasts are encouraging and now is the best time for snowmobilers to renew their membership and prepare for the 2013 winter season,” said Dominic Jacangelo, Executive Director of NYSSA. “Club memberships allow NYSSA and the local clubs the ability to provide safe and well maintained trails for our members statewide.”
Anyone that signs up for a membership before November 15, will be entered for a prize courtesy of Country Inn and Suites and Upstate Seg Tours. Last month’s membership winner had the option of a new trailer or $1,000, donated by Fisk Distributing of Lyndonville, NY. Previously NYSSA gave away tickets to the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen, donated by Nationwide.
By joining a club, members will save money on their snowmobile registration and receive a wide variety of member benefits from local and national sponsors. Local clubs and NYSSA partner with local businesses to ensure services are available to all of its members, giving additional benefits to each paid member. Clubs are always in need of additional volunteers to run their yearly endeavors as well. From fundraisers to trail work and grooming, it’s the club volunteers that maintain the more than 10,000 miles of snowmobile trails that New York State has to offer. NYSSA invites club members to become more involved with their club and “their sport”.
Now is also a good time for snowmobilers to register their sleds. New York State DMV allows for online registration renewal that is quick and easy for all snowmobilers.

The New York State Snowmobile Association (NYSSA), a non-profit corporation, is the largest snowmobile association in the country working on behalf of the registered NY snowmobile owners, who contribute $868 million to the New York State economy, and 242 snowmobile clubs to improve trails, facilities and services for participants, and defend snowmobilers against discriminatory legislation.
