From the President’s desk

Hello from the Mercer Area Sno-Goers. I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you that visited the Mercer Area, for coming and patronizing the area businesses and enjoying our trails.
It has been a very trying year this year due to the extremely wet summer and fall, which made our swamps a nightmare. We also had a couple melt downs, and an very early end to our snowmobile season. With little snow in the states around as well as Wisconsin, we in this area tend to get an extreme amount of snowmobilers here in beautiful Iron county.
I want to thank all the businesses, volunteers, the Board of Directors, the officers, and all the groomer drivers. All of whom donate their time and money to help make this club a success! We are a 100% volunteer club.
We work year around, working with land owners, the State, the forestry, and town, with reroutes, getting grants and raising money.
Currently we are brushing trails, with very little time to get through the swamps before they thaw for the season.
We are also looking at buying a new light weight groomer, which will help us to get through the swamps earlier. If we could only know what mother nature will do next year?
Enjoy your spring and summer, and we here in the Mercer area are grateful, and we hope to see you here in our winter wonderland again soon.
Andy

TRAILS are CLOSED

Looks like our riding season is over. See posting below. Thanks for all your support this year!

From the Iron County Forest Administrator:
All Iron County snowmobile and ATV trails will be closed effective Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 12:00 noon. Gates along the trails will be closed.

All ATV trails will remain closed until break-up conditions recede. ATV trails will open on a trail-by-trail basis as trail conditions dry up and have been inspected for washouts and grade integrity. This is estimated to be mid-May.
