CONCORD, N.H. — Snowmobilers in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine are gearing up for the annual three-day weekend when riders registered in any one of those states can explore the trails of the other two states for free.

New Hampshire Fish and Game officials — working in conjunction with the sister states — have set that weekend for Jan. 31-Feb. 2.

Any snowmobile legally registered in any of the participating states is allowed on trails in all three states on reciprocity weekend. In addition to having to be legally registered, all other host state regulations apply, including speed limits, youth laws and Vermont’s mandatory liability insurance law.

New Hampshire and Vermont have held an annual reciprocity weekend since 2010. Maine passed a law in 2011 to join the weekend festivities.
