Snowmobile Friendly Communities

MnUSA Announces its Snowmobile Friendly Community Program


Snowmobilers provide a great economic benefit to communities while traveling during the winter months. They look for areas to ride where communities are friendly, safe, and provide amenities. Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MnUSA) has been working with other states across the US in the development of a Snowmobile Friendly Community Program to enhance snowmobile tourism and snowmobile opportunities, improve safety, and generate the partnerships so essential to the snowmobile trails. The program has become a national program supported by the American Council of Snowmobile Associations. MnUSA is excited to initiate this program in Minnesota to recognize its partner communities.

How does the program work? The Program Guide sets out requirements to be considered for the recognition. In order for a community to be deemed “snowmobile friendly” it will have created a partnership between the local snowmobile club, community, businesses and law enforcement and must meet certain criteria as set out in the Program Guide. An application is completed on behalf of the community and sponsoring snowmobile club providing information about the community and snowmobiling. The applications are scored and recognition determined by MnUSA. The deadline to apply for designation for the 2018-2019 season is October 1, 2018. Recipients of the designation will be notified by December 1st.

For questions on the process or designation, please contact the MnUSA office.
