Trail Conditions: Excellent
Snow Cover: 16-22 inches
Date of Report: February 20, 2019
Our trails are in excellent condition! We went for a short ride on Monday. Boulder and Manitowish Waters trails were GREAT. This is a great time of year to get up here and ride! The week after a holiday weekend is usually a bit slower – so get out and Ride!
BEWARE OF DEER AND OTHER WILDLIFE ON THE TRAIL With the deep snow in the woods you will see many deer trying to move around. Be a good person and give them time to get off of the trail! It is this time of year that is real hard on all the wildlife: cold temps, scarce food sources and poor mobility due to deep snow makes it real tough on them.

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