Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin Snowmobiling and Snowmobile Trail Conditions Reports
Latest Trail Report Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 5:04pm - 1/22/2015 Image Our trails are in good condition. Do continue to ride carefully and slow through the corners, there will be alot of traffic again this weekend. I rode over to "The Idle Hour Tuesday" through Flambeu across their marked lakes to Chequamagon trail 142 and 144 back up to Springstead, then 182 to 17 to 8 back to MW. 8 was a bit choppy between Lazy Ace and MW trails but not bad. All other trails were good. I did mention Lakes, some clubs have trails on the lakes MW does not. Stay off of the lakes unless you are in an area that has marked trails on lakes. Then stay on those marked trails. People are still getting stuck in the slush off of the trails. The problem is we had alot of early season snow on top of very little ice, so the lakes remain slushy. Remember our upcoming events: Sunday Feb 1st Breakfast at the Pea Patch 8 am - noon and drawing for Guns and Roses Raffle Saturday Feb 14th Winterfest Rendezvous Winterfest Rendezvous, Saturday Feb 14th. Events include: Ice fishing contest, Raffles, Kids games, Live Music by Justin Russell inside our heated tent, drawing for a 2015 Skidoo Renegade, food and beverages available, Fireworks show at 6:30. We are looking for raffle items so if you have something you would like to donate, you can drop it off at the Pea Patch. This is a really fun day and one of our biggest fundraisers for the Sno Skeeters. see more information on our website calendar at: www.mw-snoskeeters.com Trail condition: Good Posted by: Barry Hopkins

Latest Trail Report Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at 7:39am - 1/20/2015 We saw some warm wether and alot of traffic over the weekend, especially Saturday. So the trails got a bit bumpy and soft by Sat night. But the Groomer has been out and we heard great things again yesterday about the trails. I am calling our trails Good to very good. Let me get back to you after riding today and we may be right back to "very good" rating. I can tell you this, if you have a chance to break away and do some riding during the week, DO IT!! you will see Less traffic and great trails.

Latest Trail Report Thursday, January 8, 2015 at 2:15pm - 1/8/2015 Our trails seem to get better every day. A few inches of snow already today and its still coming down. Our trails are very good and will be even better after the groomer gets out there tonight. with the fresh snow comes snow dust.... allow enough riding space between the rider ahead of you to stop safely. Another safety idea: The Sno Skeeters sells reflective Sno Skeeter Helmet stickers $5 these are pretty nice to make yourself more visible to the rider behind you. Available at the Pea Patch and soon to be at other area businesses. Remember to stay on the trails: Snowmobiling is a privilege, not a right. Respect our landowners who are kind enough to allow us the use of their property. Remember these upcoming events: All you can eat Pizza at the Rustic Roadhaus: Sat Jan 17th 5-8 pm Breakfast and raffle for guns and roses at the Pea Patch: Sunday Feb 1st 8am-noon Winterfest Rendezvous: Sat Feb 14th.

Latest Trail Report Wednesday, December 24, 2014 at 10:14am - 12/24/2014 I continue to rate our trails as fair, only for the fact that trail#6 is not groomed and has an open wet area about a mile north of Manitowish Waters. It is rideable but a novice rider may want to avoid this trail. It should be fine over the weekend as the temperatures will eventually freeze this area. Other than that section are trails are Good. The groomer was out last night. the picture on our web page was taken last night after the groomer went by. We are offering a snowmobile safety course at the community center friday and saturday. call Merry at 715-543-2048 for information. Merry Christmas!!! Trail condition: Fair Posted by: Barry Hopkins

Latest Trail Report Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 8:51am - 12/18/2014 We've seen about 3-4" of snow over the last few days. Temps have cooled off. No snow in the forecast until Sunday, but then there is Snow forecasted daily for the next 6 days after that. I rode our swamp sections Tuesday and they were starting to refreeze. They are rideable, not great but you can get through. Overall I would still rate many sections fair, but some are Poor (swamps) If I had to wager a guess, I would say that our trails will be in much better shape by the mid to end of next week. Fair at worst, good is what we are hoping. I will continue to ride and update what I see and hear. Ride safe and hope to see you soon! Posted by: Barry Hopkins
