Our trails are in good to very good condition! Trail 6 to Winchester is open and is being groomed regularly.

Remember “United we Trail, 
Divided we fail”.
REMEMBER THIS: ALL OF OUR GROOMERS ARE VOLUNTEERS, THEY SQUEEZE IN VOLUNTEER HOURS BETWEEN WORKING FULL-TIME JOBS. Most of us ride far less than you do so please remember that before you complain about conditions. We, along with all other clubs, are busting butt to make your ride enjoyable.
Remember to use your hand signals, stay on marked trails, respect the deer on the trails AND STAY OFF OF THE LAKES THEY ARE NOT SAFE!

Snowmobiling Information

Manitowish Waters , Wisconsin - Snowmobiling Conditions & NewsThe Manitowish Waters Sno-Skeeters snowmobile club was founded in 1968 and is one of the oldest snowmobile clubs in existence today in Wisconsin. Located in the very northwest corner of Vilas county, Manitowish Waters borders the Lake Superior snow-belt country. With average snowfalls of 150 inches and over 25 miles of professionally groomed trails, the area is one of Vilas County’s top winter vacation areas.

The Manitowish Waters trail system is a unique hub network directly linking into 5 other trail systems. With Minocqua/Woodruff to our south, St. Germain/Eagle River to our southeast, Lake Gogebic to our north, Presque Isle/Winchester to our northeast, Mercer and Hurley to our northwest and Lac du Flambeau/Price County to our west, our area residents and guests can choose from a variety of daily or overnight destinations for scenic riding with excellent pit stops along the way.

The Manitowish Waters Sno-Skeeters maintain an active grooming schedule for the area’s trail system. Coordinated efforts with the surrounding communities provide continuous smoothly-groomed trails in this northwest sector. The Sno-Skeeters own and operate some of the newest grooming equipment on the market today. Support the club by attending their special events or contributing to the “trail pigs” at local establishments along the trails. Or show your support by becoming a member!
