The Oregon Sno-Blazers is a snowmobile club located in the
Southwest Quadrant of Dane county that was started in 1970. By 1973
our club had grown to the 3rd largest club in the State of Wisconsin
with a membership of 213 people. Meetings were held year round at
many locations around the Oregon area. In 1974, some club
members along with other skilled workers and equipment from
different areas around Dane County came together to build the Dayton
Bridge. Once the bridge was completed, they held a picnic at the bridge
site where about 170 people came together to help celebrate the
Since 1974, our club has hosted a annual dance, as well as a land
owner appreciation picnic each year. The land owner picnics are our
way of showing appreciation for letting us use their land to route our
trails across. Without the land owners, we wouldn't have the trail
system that we all enjoy today. We currently have about 40 land
owners that we work with each year to organize and plan trail routes.
Since the beginning of our club, we have helped raise money for
several non-profit organizations, including Easter Seals, and The
March of Dimes, by planning and hosting annual events to help fund
We also attend various senate meetings when there are Bills or Laws
that may affect snowmobiling. An example of this is in 1973 Senate bill
350 was presented. This was a bill that would have prohibited
snowmobiling after dark. The Bill was not passed due to the strong
support of snowmobilers showing up at the capitol as well as letters
sent opposing this bill. As the years have gone by, there have been
other issues that snowmobilers have opposed and supported, some
successfully and some not so successful.
Some things have changed over the years but many things have not,
we continue to hold fund raisers for various charities, hold the land
owners picnics, plan club trips, etc. In 2014 we discontinued our
Annual Dance and Raffle and teamed up with the Brooklyn
Sno-Hornets and began hosting a Labor Day Truck and Tractor pull.
We hold monthly meetings October through March which are usually
held at one location with the exception of our December meeting which
coincides with our Christmas party and the February meeting which is
held at our winter picnic where fun can be had by members of all
We currently have about 90 members, but we are always looking for
more. If you enjoy the trails and do not currently belong to a
club, please consider joining ours to join in all fun

Snowmobiling in Wisconsin is wonderful! We have the
finest trail system in the country with over 25,000 miles
through the volunteer efforts of snowmobilers who have
organized into clubs to establish and maintain portions
of the Wisconsin trail system. It is the responsibility of
the snowmobile clubs to provide for trail easements,
signing, brushing, grooming and other maintenance.
Wisconsin Snowmobile trails are built solely by
volunteer workers. If the trails are good, thank them. If
the trails are bad, volunteer!
Do snowmobile clubs only work on snowmobile trails?
By no means! They have fun. They snowmobile, they
socialize, they raise money for charities, they take trips,
go camping, hold fund raisers, and help with
community projects. A snowmobile club has
something for everyone.
By belonging to a snowmobile club, you are helping to
keep the sport as strong as it is by providing good trails
and you are having fun by being with people who enjoy
and understand the fun and fellowship of snowmobiling.
Join your local snowmobile club.
"United we trail.....Divided we fall!"
