The cold and snow of winter turn our thoughts to ice fishing and snowmobiling as well as cross country skiing and other cold weather activities.

Safety is first and foremost and the chart below can serve as a guide when venturing out on the local lakes and flowages.

The local snowmobile clubs have been out prepping the trails for winter traffic. We invite you to visit our area for a ride, and if you enjoy riding in this area, we encourage you to join a local club.

There are also a number of Cross County Skiing opportunities in the area. Visit our Cross Country Skiing Page for details.

Once the ice has thickened up a bit, you might want to try your luck at ice fishing. There are many ice fishing derbies held throughout the area. In addition, there are a variety of winter festivals and snowmobile radar runs held throughout the season. Check out our Event Calendar for local events.
