CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire Fish and Game officials are holding a public hearing to set dates when snowmobilers in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont can ride each other’s trails for free.
Officials have proposed making Jan. 30 to Feb 1 the three-day weekend for the annual Snowmobile Reciprocity in 2015. The dates for 2016 would be Jan. 29-31. The hearing is Friday at Fish and Game headquarters in Concord.
Any snowmobile legally registered in one of the participating states is allowed on trails in all three states on reciprocity weekends. In addition to having to be legally registered, all other host state regulations apply, including speed limits and Vermont’s mandatory liability insurance.
New Hampshire and Vermont have held an annual reciprocity weekend since 2010. Maine joined the festivities in 2011.
