    Default Snowmobile registration

    Don't forget you need to carry a copy of your snowmobile registration, if you get stop by a Trooper he/she will give you a ticket for not having one.

    I've been checked quite a few times. Also don't even think about riding parts of Unit 13 without tags and registration.

    Turnagain Pass, Johnson Pass, Seward. I've been checked in every location last winter.

    I've been checked several times and they've never asked for a copy of the registration, just looked at the stickers.

    The only place I have ever been checked was Hatchers Pass, but I have been checked there 2-3 times. Seems like they are always looking for stolen sleds and check registrations as a way of taking a look at your sled.

    Actually the fine print can be a bit grey. Adding tracks to an ATV for winter travel can qualify as needing snow registration and tags.

    Registration is required on public lands. If you only drive on your private property, you are "exempt".

    If you ever ride on groomed trails, please buy the registration. It's only $10 and the money goes right into the state's trail maintenance funds to pay for the clearing and grooming of snowmachine trails.

    I will not go into my rant on the Snow machine registration. But for you folks with ATV's you should know that the Alaska outdoors council had a blurp about trying to get the same thing past the legislator for you.

    These moneys are not only used for grooming trails but also for getting trails set asside and cutting back brush and such. Also for trail markers and trail head sign's . All trail users should be in favor even if they only ride atv's . As trails get closed off they never reopen to the public.

    That's funny, we've been paying for our snowmachine AND 4 wheeler registrations for quite some time now. Even had to register the canoe to use that too, then they gave up on that one after a few years.
