Vilas County Trails are officially closed as of 7am today – Tuesday March 7th, 2017
From Dale Mayo:
“””Due to rapidly deteriorating trail conditions and high winds this morning, the funded snowmobile trail system
in Vilas County will officially close at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, 7 March 2017.”””

The trails could potentially reopen if conditions permit – but – the way it looks right now – this happening is highly unlikely. We have trees down on the system from last nights storm and continuing high winds. Reopening would also take a significant snowfall and then an inspection of each club’s system by that club and then the President of that club would need to sign off that his or her system is safe and ready to go. Trails could be open until March 31st at midnight – conditions permitting.
Still a few days remaining!
***Who couldn’t use some extra cash? A new fundraiser for this season is the Barnstormers Poker Run – 50/50 3-place Raffle to help support our trails. Tickets will be available at businesses listed below and are $5. 2000 tickets will be available for sale. Possible cash prizes of up to $2500, $1500, and $1000 if all tickets are sold. Tickets will be available starting in December at Sayner Pub, Stillwaters, Vinchi’s, Weber’s, Mar-li’s, Patti’s Murmuring Waters, and Fibbers. The Poker Run doesn’t end until March 19th so there is still time to get out and win some cash!!! Even if there is no riding, you can still do it by truck/car!!!
