Wondrous Winter


Eventually the iron-gray skies and gales of November blow in winter. The U.P. looks forward to snow (200 inches annually). The temperatures are comfortably cold, not bone-chilling. There are thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails, dozens of ski resorts and hundreds of miles of cross-country and snowshoe trails in the U.P. Where there is ice you’ll see fishing shanties, pond hockey and ice skating.

If you enjoy extreme challenges try ice climbing, ice sailing and snow biking. Learn to race dogs from a musher. Hike to frozen waterfalls. Look for eagles and tundra swans. Curl up by a fire reading at one of our hotels or resorts. U.P. chefs will have comfort foods steaming on the stove and hot pasties waiting for you.
