"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to
have my senses put in order." -John Burroughs
VASSA exists to assist, advise, inform and advocate in matters related to silent sports in the Vilas area of northern Wisconsin.
We believe that the economic benefit that silent sports can bring to the area is largely untapped. A vibrant silent sport tourism industry can complement and augment the existing economy.
We wish to bring together a diverse group of people in pursuit of making the Vilas area a “go-to” destination for hikers, bicyclists, cross-county skiers, canoeists, and all manner of silent sport enthusiasts.
Contact us with any questions or ideas you have or to volunteer - we're happy for your interest!
