Have Fun, Be Safe When Using Skimobiles

Category: North Conway Activities

Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles are a fun way to get around in the winter months. The cold returned with a vengeance at the end of February, so the trails should be set up for some great riding.

Skimobiles are welcome at The Green Granite Inn. We offer parking in certain areas of our parking lots to accommodate trailers. We are close to some popular trails. However, there is no direct access from our property and no riding of these vehicles allowed on the property, so you will need to transport any OHRV you bring with you on a trailer to nearby trails.

We want you to have a memorable and safe winter adventure. Use caution and common sense.

Here are some things to remember:
* You can only ride on trails designated and signed for your type of vehicle. The NH Bureau of Trails and the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association print statewide Snowmobile Trail maps. Landowner permission is required to operate on property of another.
* If you are visiting the area and do not own your own OHRV, one can be rented locally.
* Be prepared for extreme conditions. Cold temperatures can be dangerous, so wear clothing that is appropriate for your winter activities.
* Know your abilities and understand the capabilities of your skimobile. Every operator and every machine have different capabilities.
* Remember trail conditions are forever changing, so make sure that you operate at a speed that is reasonable for the existing conditions. For example, at night or when operating in other low-visibility conditions, reduce your speed so that you can identify and avoid sudden hazards on the trail or lake. Always be aware of the conditions of the trail.
* Don't Drink and Ride. New Hampshire has strict laws prohibiting operating any type of recreational vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you take the chance, you will lose your privileges to operate any type of recreational vehicle or motor vehicle and pay substantial fines. The Fish and Game Department and the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association continue to promote zero tolerance. The legal blood alcohol concentration limit for operating OHRVs is similar to that of driving cars, .08%.
* Be especially careful on weekends that draw large crowds outdoors.
* Always check the thickness and condition of the ice before going out on any lakes.
* OHRV Safety Education Courses for snowmobiles, All-Terrain Vehicles and trail bikes are available in the area, taught by Fish and Game-certified volunteer instructors to certify children 12 and older.
