welcome to our winter wonderland

Winter Adventure

We like winter, and we have plenty of cool ways to enjoy it. For starters, how about a dogsledding adventure? There’s nothing like the thrill of whooshing along behind a team of eager huskies, snow flying and harnesses jingling. Make it an hour’s jaunt or a weekend-long trek. You can even drive the team yourself, once a seasoned musher shows you how.

Winter camping, deep in the snow-scalloped forest, can be a high point of your Northern experience. Hunker down on fresh spruce boughs and inhale that mug of hot tea. Roast your toes by the fire and take a last, awestruck look at the winter sky before you drop off to sleep. Closer to town, strap on snowshoes or cross country skis and explore the beautiful trails that wind their way around our communities, through parks and across iced-over lakes.
