VILAS COUNTY SNOWMOBILE TRAILS WILL BE SANCTIONED TO OPEN ON DECEMBER 17. SNOW CONDITION PERMITTING.
About 5-6 inches of SNOW over night! Still SNOWING this morning!
The Brushing & Signing crew have been out every Thursday for a while now getting the trails ready. We also had the 1st Annual Brushing & Signing Party with a weenie roast. The guys & gals have had to go over the trails several times due to all the high winds. Branches, trees & brush has fallen into the trails. Tomorrow will be the last Thursday of work.
Next Wednesday, December 11 Trail Boss Tom & a few works will go out with the Vilas County Parks & Recreation Administrator, Dale Mayo to inspect the Sno-Eagles Trails for sanctioning. He is doing the same for the other 10 clubs in Vilas County. When that’s all done it’s a waiting game for the 17th of the month.
So…..what I need from you all is first THINK COLD & then start doing the SNOW DANCE. Nice & load so I can hear it up here. A cold front is coming in & bringing in SNOW. Right now we have a light covering. Any where from a schiff to 3 inches on the ground.
As for the 2 lake trails, Catfish Lake Loop & the Eagle Lake Trail they are ice covered. Not enough to open the lake trails unless you all THINK COLD really hard!
It won’t be long now! See ya on the trails real soon!

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.
