***** NORTHWOODS PASSAGE SNOWMOBILE CLUB TRAIL REPORT
As of FRIDAY, FEB. 24, 2017
Northwoods Passage trails are open, except the 86 trail, the 19 Corridor, and trails that cross lakes and rivers.
Trail are in poor condition. We are back to early season conditions. As trails get packed down and wet areas freeze conditions will improve.
All of the lake markers in the Tomahawk area have been removed, including all of Lake Nokomis and Lake Mohawksin.. Water levels have risen and there is open water at the edges and in channels.
The Big Somo River is flooding. Bridge near Tripoli is under water and the crossing south of Somo Lake has open water.
We are trying to keep trails open to allow riding, but some just will not be safe and must be closed.
WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT RIDE ON LAKES AND RIVERS
Ride at your own risk.

WISCONSIN TRAIL PASS REGULATIONS, from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources:
Wisconsin is the birthplace of snowmobiling and continues to offer some of the best snowmobiling opportunities you are likely to find, especially in northern Wisconsin. More than 200,000 registered snowmobiles hit Wisconsin's 25,000 miles of groomed trails each winter, making safety an important part of the ride. Ride smart from the start - take a snowmobile safety course!
If you were born on or after Jan. 1, 1985, and are at least age 12, you must complete a snowmobile safety certification course to operate a snowmobile on Wisconsin public snowmobile trails and areas. DNR recreational safety specialists recommend snowmobile operators complete a safety course.
•$30 for a three-year registration
•purchase and display of an annual trail pass required to use public trails;
•a $20 savings off the standard $30 trail pass fee for members of both a snowmobile club and the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs; and
•nonresident trail passes will increase from $35 to $50.
The new fee structure supports local trail maintenance and will generate additional revenue for the state snowmobile program fund.
