cross state lines
CONCORD, N.H. — Registered snowmobilers in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine can venture into one another’s states next month during a reciprocal weekend for the three northern New England states.
Any snowmobile legally registered in one of the participating states will be allowed on trails in all three during the weekend of Jan. 25-27. All other host state regulations will apply, including speed limits, youth laws and Vermont’s mandatory liability insurance.
New Hampshire and Vermont have held an annual weekend opening up their trails to the other since 2010. Maine joined last year after a law was passed in 2011 including it in the weekend.
Participating states plan to hold the snowmobile weekend each year on the fourth weekend in January.MORE IN Vermont News
