Change IS Here!
The way we register snowmobiles in Wisconsin changed on July 1, 2015. In addition to your sled registration, you will be required to purchase an annual “Trail Pass” for sleds to operate legally on the Wisconsin trail system. Please visit the AWSC (Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs) web site at www.awsc.org for more information and instructions for purchasing your Trail Pass. Members of a sanctioned AWSC club will qualify to receive the Trail Pass at a discounted rate. Non-members will pay more. You do not have to join a club, if you prefer you may opt to pay the additional amount for non-members. But regardless, you will need a Trail Pass beginning this coming season.
If you don’t currently belong to a club and would like to, please consider joining one of the Marinette County clubs. All of our county clubs are listed on this web site. All of them are set up for the new process and they all welcome new members. Click on the “Club Links” to check out each club and find one that is in your riding area or one that sounds to your liking.
Funds generated will go into the trail system: to provide for trail development, funding for currently un-funded trails, re-location, bridge projects, law enforcement and additional dollars to the clubs for their trail maintenance (funding). It’s been years and years since the program has seen any increase in funding and much has been left behind because the club’s can not pay for it.
Remember: The snowmobile program in Wisconsin is SELF-FUNDED and maintained by generous, giving VOLUNTEERS! Please support the sport you love through club membership. Join one of our area clubs today!___________________________________________________________________________________________
