The 11 Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance Clubs, (The Arbor Vitae Cross Country Cruisers, The Boulder Junction Snowmobile Club, The Conover Sno-Buddies, The Eagle River Sno-Eagles, The Lac du Flambeau Northern Hornshoe, The Land O’ Lakes Frosty Club, The Manitowish Waters Sno-Skeeters, The Phelps Snowmobile Club, The Presque Isle/ Winchester Sno-Bunnies, The Sayner Barnstormers, and The St. Germain Bo-Boen Snowmobile Club) sponsors and operators of the existing trails, have put in many volunteered hours of brushing, signing, and trail work to confirm safe opening of the snowmobile trails. Please thank them for their efforts and patronize their business sponsors. Club maps are available at many area businesses and you can check out the Vilas County MapIt App at: https://www.vilaswi.com/trails/.
Please remember, the trails are in the early season riding conditions so watch your speed and stay to the right. Most of the trails have an ice base and along with the powdery snow we received yesterday, it has made slippery conditions on the turns and the hills. Please watch your speed coming into corners and some hills could become a challenge to climb. We hope you enjoy the 500 plus miles of state-funded and many club trails in Vilas County. Please stay on the marked trails and routes. Off-trail riding is trespassing and could result in closure or loss of trails and fines for those who participate. Please remember that all lakes are unsafe and dangerous until they are marked and then, please stay on the marked portion. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable time on the trails and thank you for supporting the economy of Vilas County!
