Governor Signs CAP/STEP Into Law

 

Governor Walker signs Assembly Bill 407 into law on March 19, 2014,
creating 2013 Wisconsin Act 142.  He is joined by (left to right) Rep. Bob
Swearingen, Rep. Mary Williams, Emily Loe (aide to Rep. Czaja), Rep.Mary
Czaja, Sen. Richard Gudex, Dan Perchinsky (aide to Rep. Swearingen)
and Tim Lakin (Chief of Staff to Sen. Gudex).



 

   What You Need to Know About the New WI Trail Pass – WI Act 142
         (CAP – Club Assistance Program)

1.  When does this new law go into effect? 
July, 2015.  Act 142 requires each snowmobile operating on trails to display a WI Trail Pass to be purchased annually. This is separate from the WI snowmobile registration.
 
2.  What is the cost of the trail pass?
Once Act 142 is implemented, if your membership dues with one of the nearly 600 AWSC snowmobile clubs statewide are up to date and the club has paid your AWSC dues, the cost of the Trail Pass will be $10.  If you are purchasing the new Trail Pass and are NOT an AWSC and snowmobile club member the cost will be $30 per snowmobile.
 
3. Do I have to join a club?
 No – It will be your choice to join one of the nearly 600 AWSC snowmobile clubs statewide.  Please remember that without the clubs and volunteers there would be NO TRAILS!  It is the club volunteers that provide and maintain the WI Snowmobile Trail System.
 
4.  Where do the funds from the trail pass go?
The revenue generated from the sale of snowmobile registrations and Trail Passes will go into the state snowmobile program’s segregated fund.
 
5. How do I obtain my trail pass?
Those details and processes have yet to be determined by the State along with the AWSC.
 
6. Do I still have to register my snowmobile with the State of WI? 
Yes, however the registration fee structure will change to a $30/3 year registration.  Currently it is $30/2 years. 
 
7.  Is the Out of State (Non-Resident) trail pass going to increase in cost?
 Yes, it will increase to $50 from $35 (current).
 
8. My snowmobile is 30 years (or older).  Do I still need a trail pass?
The new law provides a free annual (yearly) trail pass sticker to be displayed on sleds 30 years and older.

PLEASE, RESPECT THE LANDOWNERS THAT MAKE THE TRAILS POSSIBLE: STAY ON THE TRAIL OR STAY HOME!!!

A 1.4 mile section of trail will be CLOSED indefinately near the Rochester Fire Dept. to the "Bypass T".  This is due to snowmobilers not staying on the trail. This decision was made by members of the Sno-Snoopers. (Posted 11/17/02)

If and when we do get enough snow, please check back here to see if the trails are open. Sometimes they are kept closed for a reason, such as allowing the groomer to get out and let the temperature drop so the trails can freeze down in hopes of the trails lasting longer for everyones enjoyment.

Another reason may be that the snow is too light and the sled can do damage to the land.
No matter if there's enough snow to ride or not, easements from landowners runs out yearly on March 31st.
Remember, without landowners allowing us to use their land there are no trails!!!

Thank you for your cooperation!

NO ATV's ALLOWED ON SNO-SNOOPERS TRAILS!!!

Violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Help us keep our trails OPEN and report ATV's on trails along with registration number to
Wayne @ (262) 534-6152

Snowmobile Trail Pass
Wisconsin law requires those who use Wisconsin snowmobile trails to display either Wisconsin registration or a snowmobile trail pass. Funds from this program will be designated for use as trail aids and related costs to enhance all Wisconsin snowmobile recreation.

The trail pass can be purchased online at Online Licensing Center @ http://dnr.wi.gov/, over the counter at any license sales location, or by phone at 1-877-945-4236

A snowmobile trail pass is required to operate a snowmobile not currently registered in Wisconsin on a snowmobile trail.  The snowmobile must be currently registered with another jurisdiction. 
The trail pass must be permanently affixed by its own adhesive to the bottom center portion of the snowmobile windshield. If there is no windshield, the sticker shall be displayed in a highly visible location on the front of the cowling of the snowmobile.

Once affixed, the sticker may not be removed or transfered to another snowmobile.
