Snowmobile Trail Report

The Manitowish Waters Sno-Skeeters Snowmobile Club welcomes you to our trails. Manitowish Waters, located in the Lake Superior Snowbelt, is a true snowmobiler’s paradise.
We have some of the most beautiful and well-groomed trails in the Midwest. Visitors and residents consider our location a great hub to access the trails of neighboring Presque Isle,
Boulder Junction and Mercer. Whether you want a short 30-mile loop through Boulder Junction, a 100-mile ride through Northern Wisconsin or a 200+ mile ride through the
Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Manitowish Waters is a great place to start or end your trip. The network of snowmobile trails in the Northwoods totals more than 1,600 miles!

The Sno- Skeeters provide the highest quality trail riding  experience, promoting safety and trail enjoyment. Our club maintains and grooms over 25 miles of trails, with trails brushed and
inspected on a regular basis. The club is funded by local fundraisers, contributions and funding from the AWSC.

Report from Barry Hopkins- Snowmobile Club President
Took a nice ride with Groomer operator Mike Swatek yesterday, up to Trail 8 & 17 over on 8 & 77 to Iron Belt (toward Hurley). Down trail 15 across Island Lake then down trail 14 to Camp 1. We then went back across the Turtle Flambeau Flowage and out to Murray’s landing road then back to Manitowish Waters. Everything was good to very good! A couple inches of new snow fluff helped all the trails. I would call our trails good overall, a few more inches and I’d be inclined to call them very good. The upcoming forecast looks good as well!

Report from Barry Hopkins- Snowmobile Club President 
About 5″ of snow yesterday did wonders for our trails! This should be a busy weekend so use caution out there! Take it easy going into the corners, remember your hand signals, respect our property owners and stay on the trail, but above all: have fun and be safe.

We rode out across the Turtle Flambeau Flowage on Monday – from Camp 1 we rode up trail 14 to Bear Chasers, then 13 back to the Yukon and 17 back to Mercer and 8 back to MW.
8, the Flowage, 14 and 13 were good to very good.
17 a little thin in spots coming through Mercer, but very rideable.
Looks like some snow coming our way.  Stay tuned and well keep you posted.

Report from Barry Hopkins- Snowmobile Club President
Our trails are fair to good.  I would probably really lean closer to good.  We groomed last night and our trails are flat.  Maybe 2″ snow Tuesday night and it’s snowing lightly today.  Trail #11 from Winchester to Wakefield is now open.  Trail 11  is a bit rough in spots, but that should improve with snow.  We continue to hear good things from the riders. Have fun and ride safe!

Report from Barry Hopkins- Snowmobile Club President
Happy New Year!
The weekend brought a lot of snowmobilers to the area. The cold temps really helped keep our base in good shape. Our trails remain in fair to good condition and the riders have been happy with what they have seen. The Boulder loop (trail #2 and #8) are in good condition. The Presque Isle loop is doing pretty good as well. A big thank you to our groomers as well as all the groomers across the state! Help all the clubs out by feeding the trail pig or making a donation to your clubs! We hope you enjoy our trails and ride safe!
