All Snowmobilers share responsibility for the environment
You will be riding in a regulated area, which means that the only area you are allowed to ride in and on is the snowmobile trail and designated free-ride areas. Riding on the trails minimizes damage to private property, wildlife, and habitat.
More and more people desire experiences in the mountains through different activities. All user groups in the mountains share in common the desire to experience the environment free from trash and litter. Always take your trash home with you and pack snowmobiles properly and thoroughly so as to not lose items and litter. Leave the rest stations in pristine condition to benefit everyone.
In Sweden, everyone has the privilege of ‘Allemansrätten:’ right of public access. This law allows you to travel on private property, as long as you do not disturb or destroy. For example, you may not damage forest plantations lingering under the snow or travel through certain protected areas. Currently, this set of laws does not apply to motorized winter recreation and it should be interpreted that motorized recreation is not protected under the right of public access: stay on trails and within designated areas.
Funsfjällens snowmobile trails are an important part of balanced mountain use. The trails are intentionally planned and placed in order to minimize impacts on flora, fauna, reindeer herding, and other user groups in the area. Some of the effects of trail planning include preservation of delicate areas, designation of large quite areas, and rules permitting snowmobile use only on trails and not beside them. The trail system exists thanks to private property owners who allow snowmobiling on their property as long as it is not misused or damaged.
Every intersection on the trail system is numbered in order to identify where you are on the snowmobile map. The trails are all marked with the following symbols and the ‘trail cross.’
Designated snowmobile trails are indicated by this symbol. It means that riding is allowed only on the trail.
Riding is not permitted on some trails, and are marked with this sign.
When crossing roads, snowmobiles have to follow the same traffic laws as cars. Come to a complete stop before crossing. Passengers are also required to dismount the snowmobile when crossing roads.
Red ‘X’s’ on roads mark winter routes. This sign shows that non-motorized users, such as skiers and pedestrians, share the route with snowmobiles. Adjust your riding style when you encounter this sign in order to make riding safe for yourself and non-motorized users.
