I think it can be up to $500 that was what my buddy that did not register said last year. I think it was only $250 the prior years.
I knew what I thought I meant.

Hello,
  We are always ready for a snowmobile trip. Just got the sleds in the shop last evening. So might take me a few days. Watch ilsnow.com just about everyday for up dates on storms and trail conditions. Like to ride at Old Forge, but will travel to find snow.
You all seem to like pictures.

Coxy, I am guessing you have personal experience? Also betting you didn't get away since they upgraded to an 800 that day?

another add on.
since we sold the Florida house last march Linda told me I should buy another sled.
Still looking
My fave so far is the entry level  carbureted 600 skidoo sport.
I can buy a new 2017 for about 7500 out the door.
The new etecs are awesome but 1100 grand is to rich for an 70 -10 year old guy that will maybe only ride a couple of more years

Pete. if I were you I would look for a slightly older fuel injected electric start sled with reverse. you should be able to get into a decent one for around $3000. It seems sleds don't really drop below $1500 value no matter how old they are. at least in this area.

If there is going to be a FF snowmobile ride I want in ! My lovely bride and I have ridden Maine, Ontario and many parts of NY. Always ready to ride with a few days notice. Pete's area is very nice.

For those of you that have sleds. Put the Polaris ride com and app on your phone. It has most of the trail maps. It's free also has atv trails

that may be .The app is pretty handy when the trail can go 3 different ways and you can't tell the rite one. It also has satellite  pictures.

I will have to do that soon. I had been tempted to buy the other app for the area but I just haven't done it. I have not done much riding the last couple of years cause I have had no one to  go with. I still like paper maps up there. they may not be 100% accurate but the batteries don't die :)

Or run out of service, around here a phone would not do much good, unless you stayed awful close to town.

Coxy, as far as I know we do not even have such a thing as liability insurance for sleds or atvs. We do have a registration here, but it is not needed except for certain properties, federal I think.

I downloaded the app last night. If I wasn't late leaving this morning I may have played with it.
