DescriptionA conflict is growing between landowners and snowmobilers. Many landowners think snowmobiles are a nuisance: noisy; trespassing on private land. Yet some landowners are cashing in on the new and fast-growing sport of snowmobiling by operating snowmobile enterprises. However, there are a few hard and cold facts that the landowner needs to consider before he invests his money in the snowmobile craze. The information presented here is based on case studies of eight commercial snowmobile enterprises in central New York State: on three golf courses, three farms, and two winter-sports areas.
