Price County, Wisconsin trails were referred to as Priceless! by American Snowmobiler (Nov. 2006) stating they offer “many trail options, fewer crowds”.
“Every year, some friends and I gather at my parents’ house on Long Lake to enjoy a weekend of snowmobiling. Even though it was a little cold Friday and Saturday, we enjoyed a great weekend on the trails. We hit northern, western, and central Price County. The trails were in wonderful condition…the best we have ever experienced in our five years and 150+ miles of riding each trip we take up here.” – M. Johnson
“We stayed in Phillips last weekend and rode snowmobiles from Friday thru Sunday – starting out rather cold but it was worth it
for the wonderful the trails and people we met. We travel around 3 hours a couple time a year to come to this area for the snowmobiling and we haven’t been disappointed yet with how great your trails are. Keep up the great work!!!!!!!!!!!” – J. Leeman
