Questions and Answers About NH Sled Registration
Q: What is new for 2002-2003?
A: The NH Legislature has passed a law that says everyone who registers in NH must be a member
of a snowmobile club OR they must pay $30 PER SLED as a CAP (Club Assistance Program) Fee.
This means if you have 4 sleds, it could cost you $120.00 IN ADDITION to registration Fees!
Q: Why was this law passed?
A: In the past, only about 10% of the registered riders in NH actually joined a snowmobile club.
Even less riders volunteer their time to assist with the maintenance of the trail system. The snowmobile
clubs and NHSA lobbied the NH legislature to require membership so the clubs could expand their membership
base. While this change should bring more revenue to the clubs, the ultimate goal is to get more of the registered
riders to volunteer their time in maintaining the 6,000+ miles of trails in the state..
Q: Have the registration fees changed?
A: Yes. The registration fees changed starting in July 2010. For NH residents, the cost is $64.00 and
for non-residents the cost is $84.00 per sled.
Q: Can I join a club when I register my machines?
A: Yes. Most dealers have memberships cards that you can purchased before your register so you can get the discount.
Q: What is the least expensive way to register my snowmobiles?
A: Join the White Mountain Ridge Runners Club for $20.00. You can then bring your WMRR membership card to
the dealer and avoid paying the CAP fee on each individual machine. However you will still have to
pay the individual registration fee for each sled. For example, if you are a non-resident with 4 sleds
you would pay 4 x $84.00 plus the $20.00 WMRR Membership fee for a total of $336.00.
If you DO NOT join a snowmobile club, your total cost would be 4 x $84.00 registration fee plus
4 x $30.00 CAP fee for a total of $456.00! You save $120 by joining our club!
Q: Do I have to join NHSA before I join the
White Mountain Ridge Runners Club?
A: No. If you are not a member of the NHSA, we will enroll you. If you are already a member of
NHSA, then fill in your membership number on our membership form.

a prerequisite for using club equipment for ongoing maintenance projects (after you have been trained).

Q: What do I get for being a member in NHSA?
A: The NHSA works with the NH Legislature and Trails Bureau establishing new trails, insurance
programs, etc. that are necessary on a state level to keep the trail system operating. You also get a
newspaper updating you on snowmobile related events all over the state.
