Snowmobile Trails Program

The Snowmobile Trails Program provides reimbursable, matching grant funds for trail easement acquisition, development and maintenance of trails and trail-related facilities for snowmobile use. The program also provides funds for snowmobile safety and educational programs. Matching funds are not required for safety and educational grant programs.

Snowmobile trail grooming activities are only provided through the program’s Grooming Pool. The Grooming Pool is a program that distributes grant funds for grooming, marking and signing snowmobile trail systems. The program offers the flexibility to use funds where trail grooming is needed around the state. If you are interested in applying for Grooming Pool funds contact your local Alaska Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation office. Trails being added to the existing pool will be subject to a review process. For more information regarding the Grooming Pool visit the following web site: Grooming Pool

The Snowmobile Trails Advisory Council (SnowTRAC) is responsible for reviewing and recommending funding for the Snowmobile Trails Program. For additional information regarding SnowTRAC visit the following web site: SnowTRAC
