NEW YORK (AP) -- New York is courting winter tourists with a fee-free weekend for out-of-state snowmobilers.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the plan Sunday at Saranac Lake. He said fees will be waived March 14 and 15 for Canadian and other out-of-state visitors with registered, insured vehicles.

New York State Snowmobile Association President Rosanne Warner said a lack of snow has made it tough to get the state's more than 10,000 miles of trails ready this season.

The state's committed $4.2 million in grants for trail maintenance across the state, funded by snowmobile registration fees.
