PIERRE, S.D. – Snowmobilers planning their winter adventures now have the 2007-08 South Dakota snowmobile trails map to guide their way. The maps outline trails systems in both eastern South Dakota and the Black Hills.
The South Dakota Snowmobile Trails Map is available by contacting the South Dakota Division of Parks and Recreation by email at ParkInfo@state.sd.us or by phone at (605) 773-3391.
On the S.D. Parks and Recreation website, users can also find information on rules, regulations, fees, safety, weather and the trails systems. When trail systems open in December, conditions will be available on the site as well. To find the information on snowmobiling online, go to www.SDparks.info and click on “Outdoor Recreation” along the left side.
State trails specialist, Scott Carbonneau, said the Black Hills snowmobile trails officially open Dec. 15, while trails in the eastern part of the state open Dec. 1. He added that snow conditions will determine whether grooming operations begin on those specific dates.
Information on travel and accommodations for snowmobilers is available through the S.D. Department of Tourism by visiting www.TravelSD.com or by calling (800) S-DAKOTA.
