Snowmobile trails in Erie County are scheduled to open today.
However the ground is not quite frozen, and plus there's far from six inches of snow on the ground. Closer to none. While that could change in the near future. There are still other challenges facing snowmobile clubs statewide.
The State Snowmobile Association says there's a two million dollar gap in the trail fund that normally goes toward path maintenance.
That's because registrations are down by 45,000 in New York State, which can be partially blamed on last year's lack of snow.
