When do 2019-2020 registration number come out?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know when the final number of Snowmobile registrations for 2019-2020 are made public? Curious what the numbers are.

On March 16, 2020.

Today's Union Leader has a story on the 2019-2020 sled season in the north country of NH. 

Capt Eastman stated that as of 2/26/2020 40,272 sleds have been registered, which is a drop of about 4,000 sleds from the previous year.

 

I've heard nothing more recent. I was surprised to see the number as good as it was.The snow was in the north country, with little to no riding in the southern half. This year, 2020-2021, the registrations go up $1 for the registration agent and snowmobile fees go up $32. That means a resident club member will pay $99 per sled. I imagine that more riders will wait to see how much snow is on the ground before they register.

They may. But with the State budget being upended, the expectation is that the study committee will not find a subsidy and the second bump in registrations will need to be activated.

I think we may also see NRTP transfer from the NH DOT to be a question in the process.

So I would guess the option of an early registration at a lower cost may be something that the study committee would be recommending.

It probably won't change this year's increase, but could be used as an incentive the second bump to get registrations to start early.

That is a good number, 2018-19 was a good season so I’m sure that helped roll into last season. 
I’d think something would need to happen this year to incentivize early registration this coming season. I’m sure many people will be hesitant until snow is flying after last season. 
 

my family and our partner family didn’t even register, and we won’t register at new price next year until we have ride-able snow.

We’ve just about decided we’re trading in the Hundreds of $ in sled registrations and trading in for a Four Seat SidexSide. 
 

where the season is twice as long(if there’s actually even snow).

we will only have to register one machine and can easily afford Maine and NH with money for gas. 
 

Expensive costs and the restrictive laws have taken their toll on family affordability. 
 

Poor seasons and High Costs make it not worth it unfortunately. 
 

Does anyone else know people going this route?

We've seen some... but most are concerned with width factor and then complain to me about the limited miles.

More miles cost more money.

I have already sold one sled to out of state person. We do have a 4 seat RZR that is a 2017 and we have over 5200 miles on it. We bought it leftover June of 2018. My 2007 Crossfire only has about that many miles so it kind of shows the difference. IF, you do but a 4 seater, ust watch the width as some places you are limited.

I saw some sales and registration numbers for last winter from ISMA.

NH registrations: 41,275

US registrations: 1.1 million

Wisconsin registrations: 220,000 (that means that better than 1 in every 5 US sleds is registered in Wisconsin!. ISMA lists numbers for 25 states, including Nebraska which registered 805 sleds) 

Maine registrations: 82,600

Quebec registrations: 208,000

Total new sleds sold in US: 51,036

 

Looking at some old US sales numbers the biggest recent years were between 1995 (148K) and 2002 ((134K), with 1996 and 1997 selling 170K each.  Still, nothing like the early 1970's when about 600,000 sled were sold each year.
