Ride safely, cautiously, respectfully and remember to thank landowners and groomer drivers!

Therefore TPSC trails are CLOSED.
                All Langlade County trails remain CLOSED.  We need more snow.
From the Forest County Forestry Administrator.
Forest County Snowmobile Trails will be partially opening at Noon on Friday, January 29, 2021 for the snowmobiling season. Forest County has about 405 miles of state funded trails maintained by five snowmobile clubs including the 100 Mile Snow Safari, Lumberjack Memorial Trails, Black Bear Sportsmen’s Club Trails, Three Lakes Trails and the Tombstone-Pickerel Trails. Only the northern trails will be open. Everything north of Goodman Park Rd to County Rd H to County Rd T to Hwy 32 and west along Hwy 8 w will be open. Everything south of that line will remain closed. Closed trails will be marked with ribbon and/or or “Trail closed” signs, please pay close attention when riding as the closed trails are in dangerous riding conditions.
Snowmobile clubs have been panning the trails and have all trails cleared and signed.
New snowmobile maps are also available for the New Year thanks to sizeable donations by the Sugarbush Snowmowheelers. The donations has resulted in an awesome snowmobile trail map to guide snowmobilers throughout Forest County.
Please remember that the Nicolet State Trail, the Wolf River State Trail, and the Valley Trail are the ONLY snowmobile trails in Forest County that are currently open for ATV and UTV use. The Forest County Snowmobile Trail Ordinance currently prohibits ATV, UTV use and motor vehicle use on all other snowmobile trails in Forest County. Snowmobile trails are “NOT” open for motor vehicle use or hunting. THOSE DRIVING TRUCKS ON TRAILS ARE SUBJECT TO FINES THROUGH THE COUNTY SNOWMOBILE TRAIL ORDINANCE.
Updated trail condition reports can be found daily by calling the Forest County Snowline at 715-478-3475 or logging onto the Forest County website at www.forestcountywi.com. This website also provides links to local snowmobile clubs which provide daily grooming reports and maps of the Forest County trail system. You may choose to log on to a specific snowmobile club for trail information including the 100 Mile Snow Safari at www.100milesnowsafari.com or Lumberjack Memorial Trails at www.lmtsnowmobiletrails.com or Tombstone-Pickerel Trails at www.tombstonepickerel.com or Three Lakes Trails at www.threelakestrails.com.
The Department of Tourism also provides statewide snowmobile travel conditions at www.travelwisconsin.com/snow-conditions-report/snowmobile.

01/24/21: We had a few inches of snow that fell overnight.  It is not the real wet & heavy kind but it does have a little moisture to it.  Our trails are being panned today and tomorrow.  Swampy areas are continued to being packed.
Trails remain CLOSED at this time.
We still need more snow especially to fill in the rutted areas.

01/18/21:
 
Even though TPSC does not groom, mark, maintain or have any responsibility for snowmobiles riding on any lakes, a concerned individual asked that we let you know that there is a dangerous 2 foot ice heave that goes all the way across Pickerel Lake.  The heave is about 30 yards east of Pickerel Point's beach, it runs from the north shore of the lake to the south shore.  He said you can get around the heave by riding along the south shore or by the aerator fence.  We are told that depending on which way you come upon the heave, you could come to a deadly, fast stop.  Be SAFE & SLOW DOWN.


01/15/21: We got a couple of inches of wet,heavy snow last night but not enough to open the trails. 
Some of the low-lying swamp areas were packed down this morning but more to do

   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.
 


(Posted 12/12/14) Additional information from the AWSC regardingTrail Pass Roster:
Please note that the AWSC will no longer continue to list the "significant other" on the roster when the couple is not married.  The "significant other" is not a dues paying member of the AWSC and therefore is not eligible for the upcoming discounted WI Trail Pass.
   To be eligible for the discounted trail pass and the insurance benefit they must become a dues   paying member of the AWSC
