Grooming, in the beginning...
Tri-County Alliance Snowmobile Trail grooming began here.
This was the first of six ASV track trucks acquired over the years for the Tri-County area. Today, three are still in service in addition to the two large tractors shown below.
The John Deere groomer covers the Byron, German Valley and Winnebago trails.
The New Holland groomer covers the trails near Durand, Davis, Rock City and Pecatonica.
Thanks to the groomer operators for the thousands of volunteer hours they have put in!!!
Notice to Non-Residents of Illinois
For any non-residents of Illinois that want to ride any Illinois snowmobile trails you are now required to have a $25 state issued non-resident snowmobile trail pass. Some vendors may not be familiar with the trail passes. Any vendor that sells Illinois hunting licenses and most License and Title facilities can sell the trail passes. This includes most Illinois Walmart stores. If they have a Point of Sale license generating machine or use the Illinois web based system they can sell you a pass. All they need to do is use Code #490 to generate a snowmobile trail pass.

Knowledge Is Powder - Snowmobiling
On average, eighteen snowmobilers die in avalanches each year in North America. With this in mind, the Utah Avalanche Center partnered with the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association to bring you Knowledge Is Powder. This video was created to highlight five points for snowmobilers to think about before heading into the mountains.
In order for us to get the goods, we need to think about the five backcountry basics. Below are 5 key safety guidelines for riding in avalanche country:
1. GET THE GEAR: Ensure everyone has an avalanche transceiver, shovel, and probe on their person and knows how to use them.
We all wish you safe winter travels and please enjoy the video...
