Snowmobilers pause for a break.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Snowmobile ​Grants​

There are two types of grants available, the Snowmobile Capital/Construction Project Grant​ and the Snowmobile Trail Grooming Services Grant.

​​Funding for the Snowmobile Program is derived from snowmobile registration fees and is allocated to Colorado Parks and Wildlife on an annual basis by Colorado’s General Assembly. In addition to trail grooming and signing for the snowmobiling public, this funding also supports registration operations, snowmobile law enforcement, the snowmobile safety certification program and Colorado’s Avalanche Warning Program.​​​


 Snowmobile Capital/Construction Project Grant​

 

Since 1978, the Colorado Snowmobile Capital Grants Program has allocated thousands of dollars to successful applicants to purchase new groomers, repair existing​ groomers, for trailhead improvements, construction of permanent groomer and maintenance facilities and f​or the purchase of signs and trail marking materials.​
