Reporter: Julie
Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: 8-12 inches
Date of Report: March 21, 2019
Area Report:

Our trails are in fair condition but will be closer to poor by Saturday afternoon.  This is the time of year you will see conditions change daily.  The sun is out in full force today which means road crossings are bare, sunny areas are getting soft and you will see pools of water on the trail.  You may even see some swamp sections start to open a bit by Thursday afternoon. 

THE STATE FUNDED SNOWMOBILE TRAIL SYSTEM IN VILAS COUNTY WILL OFFICIALLY CLOSE EFFECTIVE 11:59 P.M. SUNDAY MARCH 24th, 2019 FOR THE SEASON.


News and Reports:

A huge thank you to all donors, sponsors, volunteers and those who came out to the Rendezvous 2019.  It was a huge success!


Snowmobile Information:

The 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!

Enjoy, and please ride responsibly and safely!
