The first snow of the season came early to Vilas County.
Yesterday was the start of a 2 day warm up. Trail Boss Tom reports that the panned trails are holding. Temperatures are dropping back down again starting Monday night. A low of 14 plus a 90% chance of SNOW. Full week of low 20’s & teens during the day. Many single digit night to include a few below zero.
The State says you can ride a snowmobile in the right of way ditch line any time year round. So you could ride there but no where else. If you do this do not go around any gates or ride on fields as that’s trespassing. You could be ticketed & worse yet you would be jeopardizing the trail easements.

Eagle River has long held the distinction of SNOWMOBILE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, and it’s a matter of pride that causes local clubs and businesses to work so diligently to maintain that title. Snowmobile fever becomes a way of life in our Eagle River winters, and the talk often turns to “picks”, “carbides” and performance. In fact, these snow machines seem to outnumber cars during the winter months.
Over 500 MILES OF GROOMED TRAILS connect the communities of the area, including access to major county and state routes. Trails wind throughout the area’s scenic forests, but frequently pass close to service businesses which can provide you with fuel and sustenance, shelter and refreshment. If you don’t have your own snowmobile, several dealerships will be happy to provide you with equipment during your visit.
