NEWS RELEASE / PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
DATE: 11 December 2019
TO: News Media and Other Parties of Interest
FROM: Dale Mayo, Vilas County Parks & Recreation Administrator
THE VILAS COUNTY STATE-FUNDED SNOWMOBILE TRAIL SYSTEM WILL OFFICIALLY OPEN AT 8:00 A.M. ON FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20 FOR THE 2019-20 SEASON.
The volunteers that make up the eleven snowmobile clubs in the Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance (VCSA) have been working hard to get the Vilas Snowmobile Trail System open in a timely manner. The last round of snowstorms resulted in a lot of trees down throughout our trail network. The ample snowfalls insulated the wet areas resulting in clubs having to pack snow in these areas. The cold temperatures will assist in the freezing.
Please stay off area lakes until trails are clearly marked going across them.
