Women on Snow is a great weekend of snowmobiling and fun in Wisconsin’s Northwoods. The annual event, which originally began in Eagle River in 1986, attracts over 100 women of all ages the last weekend in January. The event officially begins with registration on Friday morning and ends on Sunday afternoon, after brunch. The women are divided up into seven riding groups, designated by color and led by one of the hostesses.
A rider’s meeting is held before departing for the first ride. At 3:00 p.m. each group leaves the host resort for a ride on the Eagle River area trails, making a pit stop or two along the way. Dinner is a Wisconsin Fish Fry at a local establishment. Friday’s ride is approximately 50 miles.
After a continental breakfast at the lodge on Saturday, the gals are on the trail by 8:30 a.m. Each of the riding groups head in different directions, but meet at a common place for lunch. There is a support vehicle towing a snowmobile trailer available for uncooperative sleds or mishaps. After lunch, each group departs for more trail riding, returning to home base by late afternoon, and logging in about 100 miles for the day. Saturday evening brings a themed banquet which is always full of fun, prizes, and surprises.
On Sunday morning, we depart for our final trail ride to brunch and our return to the host resort by noon. Most of the gals begin to pack up and head for home, but a few of the more seasoned trail riders stay for the Women on Snow Tour which occurs Monday through Wednesday after the weekend event. The tour is open to those who have ridden on a WOS weekend event.
Women on Snow is a great women’s weekend away held at Eagle Waters, a luxury resort in Eagle River, Wisconsin. Meals, lodging, and gas are included in the price for the weekend; oil and refreshments are on your own. Reservations are accepted on a first-received/first accepted basis. The registration form for the next event will be available for download from the home page in October. Get your gal pals together and join us!
