December 8, 2022 – 7:15am – 1 degree

First report of the 2022-2023.   Trails in all of Vilas County are still CLOSED.

Morning & it’s good to be back,

Trails in Eagle River & all of Vilas County remain CLOSED.  We need more snow in the south half of the County plus more COLD weather to freeze up the trails.  So before you start Doin’ The Snow Dance need you to THINK COLD!

Last week the Parks & Rec Supervisor began trail inspections.   There are 11 clubs in Vilas so it takes some time.  Should be completed by the end of this weekend or early next week.   Then it’s a waiting game.   Northern parts of the County have more SNOW than in the Southern part.   As in pass season it’s a waiting game.   Rep’s from each of the Clubs will get together & vote as to the opening date.  Then the Parks & Rec Supervisor would put out a PSA.   Stay tuned.

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.
