Here's the scoop on this years free weekend. Please note the last four words in the release. It's my understanding that the free weekend is for out of state riders only and NYS riders WILL need a trail permit to be on the TOW trails. So to all the permit holders out there...your comments didn't fall on deaf ears.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has designated the weekend of February 2nd – 5th as a free snowmobiling weekend for all out-of-state and Canadian snowmobilers. New York State registration fees will be waived for properly registered and insured out-of-state snowmobiling enthusiasts.
The Town of Webb officials have announced participation in Governor Cuomo’s program, and will not require trail permits February 2nd (8AM) through February 5th (midnight) for any properly registered and insured out-of-state snowmobiles.
