The state-funded Vilas County snowmobile trail system will open for the 2019-20 season at 8am on Friday, December 20.
From the Vilas County Department of Parks & Recreation:
The volunteers that make up the eleven snowmobile clubs in the Vilas County Snowmobile Alliance (VCSA) have been working hard to get the Vilas Snowmobile Trail System open in a timely manner. The last round of snow storms resulted in a lot of trees down throughout our trail network. The ample snowfalls insulated the wet areas resulting in clubs having to pack snow in these areas. The cold temperatures will assist in the freezing.
Please stay off area lakes until trails are clearly marked going across them.
