(AP) – The annual tri-state reciprocal snowmobile weekend starts today. From today through Sunday snowmobile enthusiasts can explore trails in other states without registering in those states.

All snowmobiles registered in New Hampshire may operate in Vermont and Maine, and all snowmobiles registered in Vermont and Maine may operate in New Hampshire.

Riders must follow all of the laws and rules of the states they visit, including Vermont’s mandatory liability insurance, safety education certification and youth operation requirements.

To be legally registered in Vermont, snowmobiles must display, pursuant to Vermont law, a valid Vermont Association of Snow Travelers, Inc. Trails Maintenance Assessment, as well as a valid registration from any state.
