Welcome to the Crow Wing County Snowmobile Trail Association!
  • Bay Lake Sno-Packers

    Bay Lake Sno-Packers

    The Bay Lake Sno-Packers are from Bay Lake and the surrounding area. Anyone is welcome to join. We are more of a social snowmobile club because we are lucky to have Garrison groom to us from the south and the SnoSerpents groom to us from the north. Therefore we are one of the two clubs in the CWCSTA that do not groom, however we do partner with the SnoSerpents for safety training as well as Garrison for trail preparation and the annual Landowners Appreciation Dinner.
