Have a camp on Tug Hill in Constableville.
Groomer goes right past the camp, we ride from our front door from Thanksgiving to Easter most years.

I'm in Manhattan, but alas, I cannot snowmobile here.

It was great seeing Manhattan covered over with an ice age, in "The Day After Tomorrow". I still fantasize about it.

Snowmobile owners would see their sleds value go up to around one Million dollars (until factories started cranking sleds out)

I'd be riding up the west side highway, then out onto the frozen hudson river, north to the castles of West Point and Bannermans Island.


No, but Seriously, there's not alot of snowmobiling around West Point, and I just dont think I''ll ever register in NY, since I dont seem to be breaking any laws by registering in NH, and then getting a VAST sticker in Vermont. That's $200 alone, without adding insurance. I cant afford any more $$ for NY.
I'll just bring the sled to my buddys house at Okemo, and sled in NH or VT, since I think there is reciprocity.

3 trips i have to do this year:

Green mountain run, from bottom to top, weaving in and out of the peaks..
NEK trip
find 62 mile railbed trail at edge of VT, and heads into NH

I know theres probably good trails in NY, but Vermont is just so damn close!

Leadertv, might I suggest staying at The Edge Hotel in Lyons Falls NY. Top notch hotel located between Tug Hill and Old Forge. They accumidate snowmobilers from all over and have a huge parkinglot for trailers and trucks. The hotel is only a few years old and is very clean and up to date. They even have self serve bulgium waffles in the morning.

From the hotel you can make a day trip to Old Forge, Tug Hill, and Stillwater. These all are favorite riding spots up there. The room will cost ya like $82 tax included (per night). I have a room booked already from 1/11-1/16 in 2005. Plus we make day trips up there every other weekend. Let me know and I'll give ya all the information I have.

Yeah, the hotel is right on a major trail that is groomed all the time. The $82 includes 2 double beds. They have bigger rooms with jacuzzs(sp), and a small kitchen. Like I said this hotel is great compared to anything in the area. Most of the other places up there are motels and are small and cramped. For an extra $10 a night they can through in a cot for someone else. As far as night life goes, there is a bar/resturarant right next door to the hotel. If you are willing to ride the sled 10 min. down the trail, Timberview bar/resturant is a good place to hang out. Trust me, they cater to snowmobilers in every which way. There is even a titty bar somewhere up there that I haven't been to yet.

I hear you about paying for trail fee's. Tug Hill is right there and you can ride the Hill all day with do problems. Stillwater Lake doesn't cost anything to ride there and its a nice ride up there. I have heard different people talk about the trails in Old Forge as being very smooth and well marked. Thats something that is lacking on Tug Hill at times. The grooming on Tug Hill is done by volunteered snowmobile clubs while the grooming in Old Forge are done by paid workers.

I can leave from the LeRoy exit on the Thruway and be up there in about 3 hours, most to all highway driving. Keep me posted when your going to be up there, I'll be sure to help out, and if your up there the same time as me, I'll show you around. Heres a good suggestion, reserve your rooms now before they fill up
Check out the hotel at www.TheEdgeHotel.com
