The Langlade County Snowmobile clubs, sponsors, and operators of the existing trails have put in many volunteered hours brushing, signing, and grooming to provide snowmobile trails for your use. Please support the snow clubs, thank them for their efforts, and patronize their business sponsors. 
Please respect private property; using trails across private lands is a privilege. Always exercise caution when riding a snowmobile.

Gartzke Flowage Cross-Country Ski Trail

  • Trail update as of March 14, 2023
    The Gratzke Flowage Cross-Country Ski Trail was not groomed after receiving 10-12 inches of snow on Sunday. The trail will not be groomed for cross-country skiing as Wednesday is forecasted to be above freezing, and rain on Thursday. The groomer is not planning on grooming the cross-country ski trail so that users can back-country ski or snowshoe on the cross-country ski trail.

  • The snowshoe trails are in good condition.

Jack Lake Cross-Country Ski Trail & Fat Tire Trail

  • Trail update as of March 17, 2023
    The Jack Lake Cross Country Ski Trail has been groomed and tracked. The trail is in excellent condition.  
  • The 1-mile snowshoe trail is in good condition.
  • Trail update as of March 17, 2023
  • The Jack Lake Fat Tire trail has been groomed. The trails are solid, smooth, and in excellent condition.

Kettlebowl Cross-Country Ski Trail

  • Trail update as of March 21, 2023
    Kettlebowl Cross County Ski Trail is no longer tracked due to the little bit of snow and drifting that occurred. There is still a good base; however, with people walking on the course, the skating deck is not smooth. Due to the forecasted warmer temperatures, the Kettlebowl cross-country trail will not be maintained any longer this season. 

Maranatha (Silver Birch Ranch) Cross-Country Ski Trail

  • Trail update as of March 14, 2023

Maranatha ski trails were groomed and tracked. The trails Derecho, Erickson, Elm, Bear, Victoria, and Deer are all in excellent condition with a 12' base. Trails not listed are closed for the remainder of the season due to the logging activities in the area.

The signage on the trails is put up as an old trail was brought back online after the July 19, 2019, storm cleanup, so try out Derecho Lane (formally Widow Maker). 

  • Trail update as of March 22, 2023
The Moccasin Ski Trail track was set on the whole trail and is very good for classical skiing. It cannot be raised with the old track setter, so when going down hills with a turn on the bottom, using the skate area is suggested. It was too warm to drag the skate deck with the old equipment, and where attempts to drag started, there were snowballs on the skate deck.  Besides where dragged, the rest of the trail will be good for skate skiing. Springtime skiing conditions continue - the trail will be firm and fast in the mornings when it freezes at night and soft and slow when temperatures get above freezing.
The snowshoe trail is in very good condition.
The Bear Lane Road and parking lot have been plowed and open.

Skijoring is allowed on the ski trail. Winter fat biking is allowed on the snowshoe trail but not the ski trail. Winter fat biking is also allowed (not on the ski trail). 

The south segment of the snowshoe trail from E to F was not logged this summer and remained closed due to large trees across the trail. The logging job on the northeast area of the ski trail has not been started, should be done during the summer, and will not affect the ski trail this season.

Springbrook Cross-Country Ski Trail

  • Trail update as of March 23, 2023

    The Springbrook Cross-Country Ski Trail is open but will no longer be groomed this season.
    Snowshoeing and winter fat biking are allowed off to the side of the groomed Springbrook cross-country ski trail.
