Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 6" - 10"
Date of Report: January 16, 2019
Manitowish Waters trails are in good condition. The trails have a good, solid base. Chance of snow flurries this week. Watch the corners as they may be icy from the heavier traffic this week.
Had a great ride on Mani trails: 6 and 8. Rode North across the Turtle Flambeau Flowage to Camp 1 (Murrays landing, trail 21, had good snow coverage) rode up to Bear chasers on trail 9A it was plowed but enough white stuff to keep cool. Trail 15 up to Iron Belt was awesome as well as trail 8 back to The Yukon. The Grade was better than I thought it would be considering the weekend traffic. It’s holding up good. REMEMBER TO RIDE RIGHT, USE YOUR HAND SIGNALS, BEWARE OF ONCOMING TRAFFIC, RESPECT OUR LANDOWNERS AND STAY ON THE MARKED TRAILS.

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!
