New Brunswick's extensive, managed snowmobile trail system supports a significant winter tourism industry. The entire network is maintained primarily by the volunteers in the 50-member clubs of the NBFSC. It is estimated there are more than 20,000 snowmobile users in New Brunswick, counting residents and visitors. Maintaining the system of trails is dependent on funding from the Trail Permits that all snowmobilers must purchase and display when using NBFSC trails.
In the interest of fairness and sustainability, the Government of New Brunswick introduced a mandatory snowmobile Trail Permit system in 2000-2001. This legislation ensures stable funding for trail upkeep and maintenance. The mandatory system, similar to that of other provinces, is based on a user-pay mechanism and provides economic benefits for the province’s winter tourism and security benefits for trail users.
