Trails are thin, but we have a good base in our area. Most riders have been quiet happy with the early season conditions. Snow is in the forecast tonight and tomorrow, hoping for some of that Lake Effect. We did groom 12B and 17 to Manitowish Waters last night for the first time this year without any issues; guess the cold weather did it’s job. Trail 12 is not yet open to Swamp Creek, it is passable but not groomed.

Conditions: Early Season
Trails opened this morning! We received over 10 inches of fresh snow yesterday and riders are reporting good conditions on most trails. The club has rolled over 200 miles of trail. Trail 17 from Powell Marsh to Hurley has been groomed and is in good condition. Please expect early season conditions as not all trails have been groomed, however trails are passable. Expect some wet areas, so ride with caution. At this time Trail 12 is closed to Swamp Creek, 8A is closed from Hwy G to Hwy 51, and 19B is closed due to running water. Please do not ride on any lakes just yet. Safe Riding and Enjoy the Season!
The winter season seems far away, but we are potentiality just over two months away from sledding. The club is already working to get ready for the season and we should be receiving our new light weight groomer next month. We are always looking for volunteers for our events, http://www.honeytraveler.com/buy-clomid/ please reach out to us before you get to town and see if you could help make the best trails better. Also we are now accepting memberships foe the 2018 season, if you ride here then why not be a member here?
The Mercer Area Sno Goers are excited to announce the winners of the 2016/2017 Winter Raffle. The raffle drawing was Saturday night, March 4 th at Gateway Lodge. Grand Prize was a 2017 ZR6000 Arctic Cat and the winner was Terrance Maerz from Mercer, WI. Second Place was a Sled EZ Dolly & Lift; donated by Sled EZ, the winner was Cindy Coyle from Sheboygan, WI. Third place was $300 cash and was won by Nancy Edwards of Thorp, WI. Gateway Lodge also conducted a bucket raffle the night of the drawing and the winner of the assorted prizes was Paul Aschenbrener.
The Grand Prize Winner Terrance Maerz of Eunica’s Beaver Lodge and his business partner Eunica Kratochvil have generously donated the sled back to the Sno Goers to be used to help promote next year’s raffle. Darrell Fohr the Sno Goers’ club Treasurer called the donation, “Historical…nobody has ever done anything like that before for our club.” Their http://quotecorner.com/zovirax.html generosity and support of the club has ensured next year’s raffle will be even a bigger success.
The Mercer Area Sno Goers would like to thank everyone who helped make this year’s raffle a huge success. A special thank you to Gateway Lodge and Sunken Horse Lodge for donating the money to print the tickets, to David McNutt for organizing the raffle, to everyone who bought tickets in support of the club’s raffle, and of course a big thank you to Terrance and Eunica for being so generous with their donation of the grand prize to our club. At the March 2017 board meeting the club discussed putting the proceeds towards the purchase of a new light-weight groomer that would allow grooming of the area swamps earlier in the season.
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, w…e 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 http://laparkan.com/buy-vardenafil/ 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.
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 sno…wmobile and ATV trails https://laparkan.com/buy-accutane/ 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.
Current TRAIL CONDITIONS: As of now the Mercer Area trails are POOR but rideable. All grooming is on hold until we get some measureable snow. As of 9 am temp is 39 degrees with light rain. Just a reminder….the flowage is no longer marked.
