As the Snow Capital of Wisconsin, you can bet that around Hurley, we have more than enough for riders all throughout winter, even when other areas don’t! Our average annual snowfall is 200 inches, but we’ve been known to top the 300 mark in past seasons.
When it comes to the trails, the community is proud to say that they are kept in outstanding shape. With the dedication of the White Thunder Riders in the north and the Mercer Sno-Goers in the south, and the Iron County Forestry Department, the trails are routinely groomed and kept in the best condition possible. They pride themselves at making sure our visitors have the best possible sledding experience they can.
Iron County boasts over 500 miles of scenic trails that can take you through the beautiful county forest, to Lake Superior, up the Penokee Mountains or to the waterfalls for truly spectacular views. Combining our 500 miles with the neighboring counties and Michigan’s U.P. provides you with over 1,000 miles of trails within a 50 mile radius of Hurley. Make Hurley your Snowmobile Hub to endless destinations.
