We have NO SNOW.  The end of February, and NO SNOW.  Luckily for skiers, there is plenty left on the hills, but it's another story for snowmobilers.

Above average temperatures are forecast for the remainder of this week.  There is a CHANCE of snow over the weekend of the 25th/26th when temperatures cool drastically. 

Please check back for updates.

Snowmobile on a trail at Allegany State Park

We have over 350+ miles of snowmobile trails in Cattaraugus County. Download the latest snowmobile map and then explore!

The Pat McGee Trail (12.2 miles) is a major segment of the Cattaraugus County trails system going from the Village of Cattaraugus to the Northern part of Salamanca, New York.

Allegany State Park contains over 90 miles of snowmobile trails and now has a trail that ends at the Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel.

Sell snowmobile permits for out of staters

We (NYS)NEED to implement a temporary trail permit license (accessible via Internet) for out of state sleds! Why wouldn't we provide legal access to visitors of our trail system? C'mon NY... Just another revenue stream! The current reg. system is not fair for out of state & weekend sleders!


you sure?
care to elaborate?
i be curious!!

Visiting from Canada

Does anyone know if I can get a weekly trail permit, or some type of visitors permit?  I don't want to pay for a full season permit as I'm only in town for one weekend.  Kindly Advise.PRAY4SNO

No weekend or week trail permits in NYS that we know of

At this time, our area of New York State does not have trail permits.

You could join a NYS snowmobile club online (cheapest is $25 family membership) and then register your sled(s) at a Department of Motor Vehicles $45 per sled (Delevan, NY or Little Valley, NY). It would cost at least $70 to get your snowmobile legally on the trails but then you can ride as much as you want until August!Wink

$Total = $25 + ($45 x number of sleds)

Another alternative is to rent a sled from Charlie's Cycle Center. The snowmobile rental rates start at $99 per day.

Updated: 2012-01-27 - Rent a snowmobile from Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Services (see the blog post Rent a Snowmobile in Western New York)

Have a great time snowmobiling!


Update your site,Charlie's cycle center is closed.

No Snowmobile Trail Changes at this time

There are no Snowmobile Trails changes at this time.

That would be nice if the snowmobile trails expanded but there is work to do before this upcoming winter. The local snowmobile clubs are always looking for volunteers (see )
