The Amery Snowmobile Club is tasked with providing safe trails in and out of Amery. The simplicity of this mission statement is somewhat deceptive, with season after season of unpredictable weather, inevitable equipment failure, and unique trail reroutes. Despite these challenges, 2023 is shaping up to be a great year for local sledding. Past club presidents Doug Johnson and Josh Nicholas, as well as current president Phil Martinson, discussed the past, present and future of the sport.

Doug Johnson served in the Army for 26 years, spent eight years as president of the Amery Snowmobile Club, four years as president for the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs (AWSC), and currently serves as the Snowmobile Representative for the State Trails Council. He provides counsel in directing funds across the state and has exceptional knowledge into the inner workings of statewide snowmobile analytics.
