    Hi Ray. I am an avid Atv/Utv owner/rider and former snowmobiler. I miss snowmobiling but we just don’t get the snow to make owning a sled worth it. This being said, ATVers spend money and support businesses year round but need to be respectful of the individual clubs rules relating to use of snowmobile trails by atvs/utvs. If the trail is posted “No atvs/utvs” find an alternate route. Trails open to atvs/utvs have come a long way over the last 20+ years. Don’t screw it up! Most atv/utv owners are responsible people but there will always be the bad apples out of the bunch! “Can’t we all just get along?” 🙂

    Ray, we rode Northern Oconto, Langlade, and Forest Counties all last week with the MS Snow Tour for a total of 700 miles. Trails were very nice for the most part, but are very thin. Many 100 Miler and LMT trails are very brown and many LMT trails are pretty rough. By the end of Saturday, the traffic and weather took its toll on most trails, but groomers in all areas went out Saturday night and did what they could with what was left. We rode 115 miles yesterday from Chute Pond out to Langlade, Lily, and back and found some trails that were still in really nice shape. Again-many trails are pretty thin, but almost every trail we rode yesterday was groomed, flat, and snow-white. Pick out the lesser traveled paths, and you will find happiness on the trails!

    Hi Ray,
    We rode quite a bit in the area Thursday night through Saturday (@230 miles) And even though the trails took a big hit from the warm up Friday and Friday night, they were not as bad as I expected them to be Saturday. Thank god for the groomer that finally left a section of Chickadee un-plowed for us riders. It would’ve been a couple miles of burnt slides without the strip of base to ride on. High five to that guy! We made it out to the High Falls ice drags on Saturday and one thing I kept seeing through the area on Friday night and into Saturday were the ATV’s and Side by Sides on the trails. There were even people telling me of local parking lots in the Silver Cliff area full of them. Aren’t there rules about them being on the trails if it’s over 28°? They really tore up the trails and rutted the hell out of them. This is one of the things that get the ATV-ers a bad rep. I hope the groomers can repair some of the damage I saw on the Iron Snowshoe. Anyway, Think snow!!
