WISCONSIN: New Trail Pass Regulations for 2015-2016 Season
All snowmobiles, in-state and out-of-state, will need a trail pass to ride on the trails. Visit the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs website (https://www.awsc.org/Trail-Pass-Registration.aspx) for information:
A $10 (discounted from $30) annual Wisconsin trail pass will be available to people who currently belong to both a Wisconsin snowmobile club and the AWSC. The $10 Trail Pass will be available for each of your Wisconsin-registered snowmobiles.
The ways you can get the $10 trail pass:
Order online through the AWSC website (www.awsc.org) with a credit/debit card (MasterCard, Visa or Discover).
Walk into the AWSC office during business hours and order with a check or credit/debit card.
Mail your check or credit card information and form to the AWSC office.
NOTE: THE MOST RECENT LEGISLATION INCORPORATED THE FOLLOWING:
Antique snowmobiles (35 years or older) do not need a trail pass. Non-residents can register antique snowmobiles
Commercial certificate holders (dealer plates) can move the trail pass from one sled to another and therefore do not need to place the pass sticker on the windshield
If the trail pass is purchased from the DNR for $30, then the DNR receipt can be used for the trail pass until the trail pass sticker arrives in the mail. This does not apply to purchases made through AWSC.
