We all like to explore and try different things out but we are calling it the year of the snowmobile. This sport is growing in popularity and we can see why. A chance to glide through white capped foresty with mountains in the background will have us saying “See you later, gator” to the Big Apple and saying “Why hello there” to the areas most known for heavy snowfalls such as the area within Hamilton County. There is bound to be a poker run, a race, a weekend festival every winter in this county so choose your event and then head over to our page to see a Long Lake snowmobile trail map, view cabin rentals for the weekend and watch pretty rad (do they still say that anymore?) videos. Tupper Lake, near the Tug Hill region, is also gaining in popularity for snowmobilers for the hard work and dedication to the trails around thea area. Be sure to check those out too!

Michigan Snowmobile Trails

We know that sometimes we can get a little fanatic about things to do and places to see in Michigan but if we weren’t, we wouldn’t be a very good company to promote Michigan now would we? We love everything about Michigan but let’s be honest, you gotta find at least one or two hobbies in the winter to warm us up and keep us busy. Snowmobiling in Michigan is truly fantastic and avid snowmobilers love the snowmobile trails in Michigan that lead you around the great lakes and through the forests. Michigan has plentiful snow to keep the volunteers busy with the trails. Join a Michigan snowmobile club, enjoy warm dinners on your mapped out snowmobile trail and relax by the fire in a cozy cabin.

The Best of Wisconsin Snowmobile Trails

All in all, Wisconsin is a winter wonderland of snow for avid snowmobilers but to fit our criteria for the best areas for snowmobile trails in Wisconsin, it had to be more than just snow and trails. The area needed events, clubs, and hundreds of miles of well groomed trails. When people look for snowmobiling in Wisconsin, they want the true effect. The long weekend or week vacation in a Eagle River cabin, sitting by the fire after a long day of zipping by on a snowmobile, and nobody gets that like we do. We actually dedicated a whole page to avid snowmobilers looking for a winter cabin rental in Wisconsin, complete with videos, cabin pictures, and things to do in the area.
