The White Thunder Riders report “Another beautiful night grooming trails in and around Hurley. 25 below was found at one point, so needless to say the marshes have firmed up along with all the trail surfaces.”
We continue to hear good things about Mercer, Manitowish Waters, Vilas County and our neighbors to the east.
STAY OFF THE LAKES AND FLOWAGES.
Trail 15 to 15A is now open with NO REROUTE.
Trail 6 in the Whitecap Mountains Resort area has an active logging operation. Use CAUTION. (Between E and E)
Trail 160 in Michigan is OPEN with a reroute.
We would like to remind everyone to STAY on the TRAIL. Stay OFF the lakes and flowages. RESPECT our landowners. If you come upon a groomer WAIT for the groomer driver to come to a complete stop and signal for you to continue.
Show your appreciation by attending club events, not just ours but neighboring clubs as well. Remember “United we Trail, Divided we Fail”

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.
