So you may ask, "What exactly is snomocaching?" It is something we started doing in 2007 during "The Great Northwoods Treasure Hunt" in which we combined two fun winter past-times: caching and snowmobiling.

In 2008, 'refelo' coined the phrase when his team found "Star Bay Monster 2" (GC150K9) after we both had visited the island via snowmobiles.

So we want to offer here a list of geocaches that are 'doable' via snowmobile and are either right off the snowmobile trail(s) or can be reached with some hiking with boots or snowshoes.

Remember, be prepared and always check trail conditions and DNR reports for ice-safety.

GC1GGZM Unknown Cache Bear's Pot of Gold
  Not too far off the trail and (the final) it is very winter friendly.
Depending on snow cover it will cover some half-stepping during the sledding season.

GCXJQT Traditional Cache Bearskin Booty
  You can get within about 50 feet or so of this one on your sled. Might want to bring some 'digging' utensils to use on this one as it may not be too 'winter friendly' depending on snow cover. A great trail if the conditions are right.  

GC2EPVJ Traditional Cache Bearskin Rapids
  Right on the Bearskin Trail. A few feet down from the trail. Watch your footing near the water. We used a geo-tool for some digging to get the BINGO. Found in Feb 2010.
