What's the cost of an out of state trail pass?

Skidooman

Looking forward to seeing a map of areas to ride our SxSs this year. Happy Easter to all!

How much snow is it the trees yet

Is there a trail map for orv..always went sledding up there but wouldn't mind trying the sxs

Looking forward to the trail reports! I've been snowmobiling up there for years and took the SxS up last May. We'll be back up the week before Memorial Day. It's a 12.5 hour drive but always well worth it!

Awesome. Is there a trail clean up date for Pine Ridge and Two Hearted?

Ice patches, that just sounds silly. However we were there during the 30 below time snowmobileing and it was glorious. Cut my grass in SE WI today. Hoping to get my friends to buy some quads and we can visit in the summa too
