Use of modified ORVs and snow bikes
If a motorized vehicle is originally manufactured as an ORV, it's considered an ORV (despite any modifications) and it is prohibited from riding designated snowmobile trails.
- Motorized recreational vehicles must be registered and permitted as manufactured, even if modified to travel on snow and ice.
- Modified ORVs are permitted to operate on dual (snowmobile and ORV) designated motorized trails.
- Modified ORVs are not allowed on designated snowmobile-only trails.
