St. Germain is well known for its fine network of snowmobile trails. Our local club, the St. Germain Bo-Boen Snowmobile Club ( pronounced bō bō-in) has developed a well marked trail system that utilizes engineered grooming equipment and procedures that are copied nationally and internationally. We are the largest club in the state with over 430 memberships. We are united with the state association, AWSC, to protect the future of snowmobiling through legislative initiatives. We encourage safe and responsible trail riding.
The Bo-Boens have an annual operating budget of $90,000 to $100,000 and a capital investment of $350,000 to $400,000. The clubs equipment includes one Tucker Sno-Cat, two New Holland Tractors, Arrowhead & Snoboss Drags (both manufactured in St. Germain) and over 100 groomed miles of trail that connect to neighboring communities. The entire Northwoods offers about 1,600 miles of signed and groomed trails!
Financially, club income is derived in various ways. About 30% is from state funding generated by snowmobilers with sled registrations, a gas tax use formula, and non-resident trail passes. The balance is done through memberships, benefit fund-raisers, raffles and generous donations from individuals and businesses. Trails would not exist without all this done by many hours of work by volunteers.
Come see why so many snowmobilers return year after year to Wisconsin's Northwoods for great family fun. You'll find a well-groomed trail network, breathtaking scenery and some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet, right here in our Northern Wisconsin communities.
