Effective immediately, corridor 9 south of intersection 24 at Polar to intersection 26 and all trails south of Hwy 47 are closed due to the lack of snow cover and standing water. Still closed is section B of Langlade County Snowmobile trail system and the trail west of intersection 53A west to County Highway H (Five Cent Firelane).

Effective July 1, 2015, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources expanded the snowmobile trail pass requirement to include snowmobiles registered in Wisconsin and increased the nonresident snowmobile trail pass fee. Beginning with the 2015-16 snow season, all snowmobiles operating on a Wisconsin snowmobile trail or corridor must display a valid snowmobile trail pass whether registered in Wisconsin or another state. The snowmobile trail pass is:
  • an annual pass valid until June 30 each year.
  • separate from snowmobile registration.
  • a 3” x 3” decal required to be permanently affixed to the bottom center portion of the snowmobile windshield.
  • not required to operate on private property, on a snow route, or on frozen water if not on a marked corridor.
The snowmobile trail pass fee is dependent upon whether the snowmobile for which you are purchasing the trail pass is registered in Wisconsin and whether the owner of that snowmobile is a member of a snowmobile club and the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs (AWSC).

* Nonresident snowmobile trail pass ($50) – for a snowmobile registered in or in the process of being registered in another state, province or country. Available online, at select agents or by calling WDNR at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

* Wisconsin snowmobile trail pass ($30) – for a snowmobile registered in Wisconsin. Available online, at any DNR license sales agent or by calling WDNR at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463). All Wisconsin snowmobile trail passes will be shipped by US Mail within 2 business days to the address specified.

* Wisconsin snowmobile trail pass for club members ($10) – for a snowmobile registered in Wisconsin and owned by a person who is both a member of a snowmobile club and a member of AWSC.
