Hey guys, I am looking for a place to ride in NY that is 3 hours or less from my house. I am looking for somewhere South East of Syracuse, or is the Syracuse area any good? Syracuse is about 3.5 hours. I thought they got a lot of snow there. Any info or web sitesyou could provide would be great. I will do the leg work and look them up and call them. I need something to do here at work. Thank you, Jerry

May i suggest the richfield springs ilion area. It is in southern herkimer and otsego counties. This is where i ride and i think it is some of the best riding in new york. we typically have a very good snowpack and the terrain varies from fields to wooded trails to lakes. you can check out the ilion snowdrifters website and also the waterville area snow travelers. (WASTA) hope this helps.

ps. feel free to ask me any other questions u may have

Jerry, check out the Catskill Mountains in the SE part of NY. I know they have lots of State owned land there. You won't see as much snow as compared to Tug Hill, but there should be trails somewhere in the Catskill region. Go to NYSSA.com and check out the counties in that region. It will give all the local snowmobile clubs in that county, with most having web sites with some type of trail maps. Good Luck, and don't limit yourself to just the SE part of NY, come riding with me in the Western New York. Ron

How far do you guys have to trailer to get to some decent riding? Sounds like alot of people here have to pack up and drive a fair distance to go sledding...

Bigw. If you are going to drive 3 1/2 you might as well go the extra hour or so. I drive (depending on the weather) 4 to 5 hours every weekend. Head to the Hill. Its worth it.
