The life and times of the Sno-Skeeters
THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE SNO-SKEETERS
Welcome to Manitowish Waters, the jewel of the northwoods and your winter headquarters for sleddin' heaven! This is the land of the Sno-Skeeter — a more benign species than their summer cousins. Yes, they also enjoy buzzing around the woods, but these skeeters don't bite; they ride. And skip the repellant, because you'll actually want them around — the Sno-skeeters are some of the most pleasant critters on the planet, and their snowmobile trails are some of the best in Wisconsin. That's pretty much the motto of the Sno-Skeeter: Safe, fun, scenic sledding and the warmest welcomes in the snowy Northwoods — a tradition they've more than lived up to every single winter since 1968.
Over the last 50 years, the Sno-Skeeters have been caring for Manitowish Waters area snowmobile trails with pride — and that pride shows in the consistently excellent conditions. The trails are groomed and maintained with a dedicated trail boss, trail crew and a modern groomer, ensuring a wonderful trail experience and a safe environment. If you're looking for a safe, fun and incredibly scenic snowmobiling experience, point your sled towards Manitowish Waters!

Sno-Skeeter pioneer Ralph Hanson was honored by the club he helped establish with a trail named in his honor.
We thank Ralph for his wonderful contributions to the Sno-Skeeters through the years. Keep an eye out for Ralph's plaque (and Ralph!) on the trail!
