GROOMER FUND – Please Donate

NORTHERN HORNSHOE TRAILS is seeking donations to replenish and grow our Groomer Fund. The club has purchased an enclosed cab UTV and Arrowhead trail drag to groom and support the west side of our trail system. We now need to replenish and raise funds to eventually replace our main Groomer. This needs to be done so we can continue to provide world class trails in Vilas County! We have two ways to donate.
Donations can be sent to

PO Box 968
Lac du Flambeau WI 54538

You can also click the “Make a Donation” link at the bottom of the page.
Please check and see if your company has a matching gifts program to recognize and support your donation. If it does, please request them to match your donation. This will help us reach our funding goals sooner.

Thank you for helping make this a success!

Thank You Lac du Flambeau

The Northern Hornshoe Snowmobile club thanks the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians for the use of tribal lands for our snowmobile trails. As you ride if you come across a sign or gate please DO NOT GO AROUND OR TRESPASS.

Have a great time riding the Northern Hornshoe Snowmobile club trails!
