    How high could sled registration go?

    aI don't disagree with you at all. my point is that the number of registered sleds are declining which is the reason that they are not bringing the funds. They are not replacing people who have stopped sledding with new people that is the issue. one factor is cost of the sport. hardcore people will always pay and ride, but you need new blood to make the sport grow I call it the Harley Davidson Syndrome, alot of older riders Not many new families are coming into the sport.

    How high could sled registration go?

    I can get a non resident registration for Maine for $100 for the season, more snow, more trails better conditions less idiots on the trail. This sport is expensive, and registrations going too high will not increase participation. Sled prices are to prohibitive for new people, and not everyone wants an 800cc turbo charged rocket that seats one person. So lets take a look roughly at cost: 2 sleds new: $ $8300 per sled:: Trailer Hybrid $4600 Gear for two people $500 per person the cheap: $1000 Registration: $66 per sled: $132 Insurance per sled Cheap $250 : $500 total $22,832 Now this is an estimate, yea they could buy used or a non covered trailer That is a lot of money to start. This is why registrations are down, cost is too high. I am going to Maine
