Trails are CLOSED

The NYSSA Snowmobile Webmap provides snowmobilers general information about snowmobiling in New York and is intended to show trails as OPEN or CLOSED. The local snowmobile club volunteers provide the detail of their trail status conditions and may include trail condition alerts.  
Another way to check current trail conditions in our county is by calling the

We owe everything to our generous landowners, so PLEASE show respect to the trails. The members of our club volunteer their time to support and sustain great snowmobile trails. Their efforts make riding the trails a pleasure. We would love to have your help too!   Join the club

If you find a hazard on the trails

Even if you are on another club's trail system or are not sure which club takes care of the trail where you find a hazard...take a picture with your phone and post it on our, or any Chautauqua County club's, Facebook page. Just click the Facebook (f) link below...someone will recognize the area/part of the trail immediately and will notify the right person, so that the hazard can be fixed.

  • The safety of snowmobilers is why club's exist
  • ​Helping and protecting our landowner's property is another reason 

If you are comfortable riding with clippers, loppers or a small saw, please feel free to cut out hazards on the trails. We don't always know when a tree falls down, so handling it yourself (when possible) or notifying our Trail Coordinator of the situation helps everyone!

Rider Courtesy

If you aren't an experienced motorcycle, bicycle or snowmobile rider, you might wonder what the hand signals mean that are used by many snowmobilers.

Hand signals are easy to use and can be a very reliable way to communicate while riding a snowmobile. They can be vital to safe snowmobile riding, so always make clear, very deliberate signals with your left arm that can be seen by other drivers behind you or approaching sleds.

Of course, there is no substitute for keeping your hands on the steering bar to be able to safely steer through a curve in the trail, etc.  We don't recommend "letting go" just to be able to signal to oncoming riders - safety first is real...!
