Langlade County Snowmobile Clubs:

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).
