2016-17 Season Recap
Unfortunately we were only able to open the trails for 4 days this last winter; 2/3-2/6. It was good to see so many sleds out during that 1 weekend though!
It's very frustrating with another low snow year. December started with a very good start, with 3 solid snow falls. We couldn't open till January due to holiday hunt. As luck didn't have, by January most of the snow was gone due to heavy rains on Christmas weekend. It was a very wet winter, but it was too warm.
Hoping for better winter ahead next year!
Montello Yetis Snowmobile club maintains 70 miles of trails in Central Marquette County Wisconsin. Montello Yetis covers from Montello to Harrisville, Montello to Citgo on Highway 23/82, Montello to Germania, and Montello to Lake Puckaway. About 29 miles of this is called "Funded Trail". That means that State funds help maintain that portion of the trail. The money from the state is generated mostly from snowmobile registration fees.
40 miles is called "Club trail", which are strictly funded by us. The costs involved to maintain trails include signs, grooming equipment, fuel, landowner payments for damage, office expenses, tool expenses and more. At the start of the season, which begins after the close of deer hunting season, the club members install signs that mark the local trails. The man hours are donated by club members. The Yetis also devote time to maintaining good relationships with the 74 property owners who have given permission for the trails to cross their land. Please respect the land due to nearly all of the trails being on private property. Without our landowners allowing us to ride across their property, we would have no trail.
