Boulder Junction Snowmobiling and Snowmobile Trail Condition Reports

Welcome to the Boulder Junction Trail Reports page. As regular visitors to Boulder Junction will know, the local snowmobile club offers some of the finest riding in the Midwest.

The 130 miles of trail in and around the Boulder Junction area are constantly groomed throughout the season, to keep them in tip-top shape. The trails are connected to hundreds of miles of Vilas County trails, and thousands of miles of northern Wisconsin trails. It's no accident that our area continually wins awards for best snowmobile destination. It is also worth noting that Boulder Junction lies far enough north that we are well inside the U.P. snow-belt. We often receive lake effect snow that communities to our south do not receive.

Boulder Junction, Wisconsin Snowmobiling and Snowmobile Trail Condition Reports
Another weekend and the trails are in good condition. We are expecting a warmer day today so they may get soft around town, but should be good once you get into the woods. The weatherman is telling us to expect some snow this weekend, that should help us keep them smooth. Remember ride early in the day for the best trails, afternoon they get pretty beat up. Hope for more snow and ride safe. Think Snow! Lou, Trail Boss Visit the Boulder Junction Snowmobile Club on-line at boulderjunctionsc.org. Don't miss these upcoming events ...

I'm happy to report that after a couple of less busy days we have the trails back in very good shape. Watch for a few icy corners but overall they are very good. I had several e-mails on our web site asking if I could post which trails were groomed. We groom every trail every night, unless we have an unforeseen problem. As I have stated often in my reports ride early in the day, especially on the busy three day weekends, because with the high volume of riders the trails really get bumpy by late afternoon. We groom at night for several reasons, safety being the foremost one. Think Snow! Lou, Trail Boss Visit the Boulder Junction Snowmobile Club on-line at boulderjunctionsc.org.

The trails are in very good condition, and the motels are filling up. Just got back from walking the dog and town was getting busy. We will be out nightly grooming the trails so conditions should be good. The weatherman is calling for warmer temps, but not too warm, and a little snow on Saturday, so we should be able to keep things smooth. Remember this Sunday, January 18, our club is having a fundraiser breakfast at Gooch's A-1 Bar and Grill from 8am until 12noon hope to see you there. Think Safety!

Boulder Junction area trails are in very good condition with few riders during the week. Change is on the way, warmer temps are predicted for the weekend, which will soften the trails a bit. This should be a busy weekend, most have Monday off, so we will be out nightly to keep the trails as smooth as possible. Don't forget this Sunday, January 18, from 8am to 12pm, we are having a club fundraiser breakfast and meat raffle at Gooch's A-1 Bar and Grill located on Hwy M north of town, by car, and trail 15 north by sled. Hope to see you there! Think Snow! Lou, Trail Boss Visit the Boulder Junction Snowmobile Club on-line at boulderjunctionsc.org. WJFW Channel 12 out of Rhinelander is reporting: We could cool off a bit for Friday as cooler air gets tugged in Thursday night but by Saturday, we'll be near 30 degrees. It puts us about ten degrees above average but keeps it cool enough to keep our winter wonderland around for outdoor activities. Don't miss these upcoming events ...

I just got off the groomer and the trails are very good. Watch for some icing in the corners, but other than that they are very nice. Please make safety your number one concern. As an old fire captain of mine told me years ago "Safety doesn't begin with S it begins with YOU". The trail leaving town to the south and east, 15s-8e has been re-routed straight east of town, we no longer go behind the Lions Pavilion. It is well marked and should not be a problem. Also be aware of green electrical boxes near some of the trails, they buried all the wires here and some of the boxes are close to our trails. Think Snow!

I just got out of the groomer about 5:30am and I am happy to report that the trails are in good shape. After a very busy week the snow held up pretty well and from most accounts the trails were good especially in the morning and early afternoon. Thanks for spending your time in our area, I hope it was enjoyable for all. This week should let us catch our breath a bit as it normally slows down after the holidays. We will still be out grooming nightly so if you have the time come up and ride, but bring your cold weather gear, as temps are supposed to remain below zero much of the week. The trail leaving town to the south and east, 15s-8e has been re-routed straight east of town, we no longer go behind the Lions Pavilion. It is well marked and should not be a problem. Trail 8w between trail 2 and North Creek Road has been logged and the loggers plowed it so it will be rough there until we get more snow. Also be aware of green electrical boxes near some of the trails, they buried all the wires here and some of the boxes are close to our trails. Think Snow!

Boulder Junction area trails remain in good condition, however, some of the turns are getting icy. Grooming continues nightly. More snow expected on Saturday, between 1 to 3 inches.

I'm happy to say that the trails are holding up fairly well with all of the traffic. We have had a very busy week so far and it looks like it will remain so through the weekend. Some spots are getting icy, we could use more snow to fill in the corners, but overall the trails remain in good condition. As always the trails will be better early in the day, so for the smoothest ride, ride early. We will be out every night doing the best we can to make them smooth and safe. I want to apologize for the trail conditions on Monday, we had both groomers out of service that night and no trails got groomed. Hopefully that won't happen again. Thanks for your patience.

WOW what a busy weekend, I've never seen this many machines in my life. With 12-18 inches of snow on the ground, the trails held up well, but became bumpy in the afternoon. Last night we had both groomers out of service so the trails are bumpy today, we will be grooming as soon as we get the equipment going. Hopefully all will be good tonight, thanks for your patience.

I hope you all had a great Christmas. The trails are in very good shape as of Friday morning and 3 to 5 more inches tonight and tomorrow should help us keep them that way. Remember this week will be a very busy time up here, especially with no snow to the south, so be safe and considerate of other riders. As always, we will do our best to keep the trails smooth but with all of the traffic they tend to get rough by late in the afternoon. If you have young or inexperienced riders try to ride early in the day for best trail conditions. Have fun and be safe!

The trails are in pretty good shape, and the additional 3-4" of heavy wet snow last night and a little more on the way will really help.

Thank goodness for the snow belt, we got about 6 inches over the past couple days and it is still snowing. After the warm weekend we were concerned that the trails would be in bad shape but now I think they will be OK. We will be out grooming tonight, and the trails should be in fair to good condition for the weekend. The weathermen are predicting some substantial snow for next week so keep your fingers crossed for a good holiday week.

Mother Nature did not cooperate this weekend, temps were in the 40s with light rain and fog. The trails took a beating, but don't give up hope yet. We still have a pretty good base and the weatherman is predicting some snow this week. The temperatures are supposed to drop tomorrow so I'll be able to give you all a better report on Wednesday after I can get out on the trails and assess them. Right now they are in poor condition.

Well the trails open today at 4pm and we have snow! The trails are in good condition to start the season but mother nature is not going to help the next couple days. Temperatures are predicted to be in the 40s this weekend and that could turn things bad in a hurry. We have groomed the trails so they are nice and smooth. There are a couple things I should share with you. The trail leaving town to the south and east, 15s-8e has been re-routed straight east of town, we no longer go behind the Lions Pavilion.
