TWIN MOUNTAIN SNOWMOBILE CLUB TRAIL CONDITIONS 2020-2021
Ride at your own risk and use caution!!
AREA TRAIL GROOMING INFORMATION
This pertains mostly to our in-town trails as well as Corridor 11 connecting the Haystack area to Bretton Woods. When there are very low snow totals in the coverage area noted above there have been questions related to the extent of our grooming operations.
Please know that if there is sufficient snow coverage to operate without doing damage to the trails as well as to our very expensive equipment we will be out grooming to the best of our ability. We depend greatly on the revenue that we receive for each hour of grooming in order to stay operational as a club. We gain no benefit by not grooming when conditions are optimal. Also please note that most of our trail system consists of winding uneven terrain in the White Mountain National Forest and not on flat roads. This in turn requires far more snow coverage to maintain a smooth trail system.
Thank you for considering these facts when you ride on our trail system.
Please remember that trail conditions can change within hours depending on weather, snowmobile use and other obstacles that are out of our control. Ride at your own risk and use caution.

Recommended Practice for Passing By a Groomer
Approved by NHSA Map and Trails Committee
- For oncoming sleds: The sleds should pull off the trail and allow the groomer to pass by.
- For sleds overtaking the groomer: The groomer operator should find a safe spot to pull over and stop. The sleds can then check to see if they can safely pass by the groomer.
Note: The operator will not signal for sleds to pass by.
Reason: Each rider must take responsibility for passing by the groomer safely.
