Welcome!
Ranger City Riders is a family-oriented Snowmobile / ATV / UTV Club located in the heart of Amberg, WI for over 50 years. Our club manages and maintains over 68 miles of trails in and around the Amberg / Wausaukee, WI area.   We work with several landowners to acquire permission to make these trails possible, then perform trail marking, brushing, grooming and grading.  We sponsor numerous events and raffles to raise funds to help cover the ever-increasing costs of maintaining our local trail system.  We currently have 140 members and are always looking to grow our recreational family.
Ranger City Riders Trail Conditions

(Updated every Tuesday thought the season or as conditions change)

3/10/24 – Our Trails have officially closed for the 2023/2024 Season

A note from our Trails Committee:

DATE: March 10, 2024

TO: RCR Club members, RCR Landowners, Snowmobiling Public

FROM: Ranger City Riders Trails Committee

RE: Ranger City Riders Snowmobile Trail System

The RCR Trails Committee and attending club members met at the monthly club meeting last night. It was unanimously agreed upon to NOT open or re-open the trails for the 2023-2024 snowmobile season regardless subsequent future snow accumulation.

The committee felt there would be a negative impact to landowner properties and the inability to properly prepare the trails for safe passage. Regardless of any significant snow accumulation, with the absence of frost in the ground and wet areas such as swamps would only result in poor riding conditions, damage to landowner property and grooming equipment. As conditions allow Trails Committee members will begin to close gates and remove trail signage.

The winter of 2023-2024 will definitely be remembered as perhaps the poorest snow season on record thru out the entire Midwest. Our snowmobile trails were only open for one week in mid-January.  We regret that our Map Sponsors and other local busineses suffered economic impact due to the lack of snow as well. Regardless of the absence of snow we remain very grateful of our landowners for the privilege of trail easement and the club members who work tirelessly thru out the year.

Sincerely,

 RCR Officers and Board of Directors
