Some areas of Wisconsin already had their first snow fall this year which means snowmobile season is not too far behind!
Now is the time to get ready by making sure your registration is current and ordering your new annual Wisconsin snowmobile trail pass! Ordering your trail pass online is fast and easy. You will have your registration decals and trail pass in hand before the trails are groomed!
An annual Wisconsin snowmobile trail pass is required to operate on all public snowmobile trails for snowmobiles currently registered in Wisconsin. Please note that all Wisconsin snowmobile trail passes, including those ordered at agent locations, are delivered by US Mail.
There are two types of trail passes for snowmobiles registered in Wisconsin. Make your selection carefully because snowmobile trail passes are not refundable:
If you are an AWSC snowmobile club member:
A $10 discounted annual Wisconsin trail pass is available to owners of snowmobiles who currently belong to a Wisconsin snowmobile club affiliated with the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs (AWSC). Passes may be ordered through the AWSC website (https://www.awsc.org). A discounted pass is available for each Wisconsin-registered snowmobile.
If you are not an AWSC snowmobile club member:
The annual Wisconsin trail pass is $30 for owners of snowmobiles who are NOT MEMBERS of a snowmobile club affiliated with the AWSC. This pass may be ordered online (go to dnr.wi.gov and keyword search “snowmobile trail pass”) or anywhere DNR licenses are sold. A temporary trail use receipt is issued at the time of online and in-person sales allowing you to operate legally on snowmobile trails. Carry the receipt with you until you receive your pass.
Need to renew your registration too? You can also do that from dnr.wi.gov (keyword search “snowmobile registration”). NOTE: if your snowmobile registration expires June 30, 2018, please wait to renew until after April 1 to get the full three years of registration.
If you cannot access the DNR web page, call the DNR Call Center at 1-888-WDNR-INFo (1-888-936-7463). We wish you safe travels.
