3/7/2017:Due to deteriorating conditions the Intl Voyageurs Snowmobile Club has removed the lake trail stakes and have closed our mainland trails. If there are any questions please call Jim Bigler or Bruce Budris.
**Please note the newly resurfaced bike trail is now closed to snowmobiles. Reason being a considerable amount of money that was spent to refurbish the trail so the county elected to close it. Snow will be left on the sides of the county roads so snowmobilers can access the snowmobile trails.
Future winter ice and trail condition press releases will be issued only during major changes in trail conditions.

FYI - riders born after December 31, 1976 are required by law to hold snowmobile safety certification. Persons 16 years of age and older, resident or non-residents are eligible for adult certification. Adults can complete and pass an independent study CD or a youth snowmobile certification class. Children 11yr – 15yr are eligible to attend, complete and pass a youth snowmobile safety certification class with the certificate valid at age 12. We suggest that all snowmobilers, residents and non residents, become familiar with the laws and regulations and pass it on to friends or customers that may be planning on riding in Minnesota.
Please don’t forget to purchase a Minnesota state “trail permit” for your sled.
