Let it snow. Let it snow. Let it snow.
During an Iron Trail winter, being cold is optional. That’s because there are plenty of ways to keep your blood pumping—275 km of cross country ski trails and more than 3,000 scenic miles of snowmobile trails just waiting to be explored. The Midwest’s best rated ski destination, Giants Ridge Golf and Ski Resort, is also located here. With 34 alpine runs and exceptional facilities, Giants Ridge is one of winter’s hottest spots! For a magical winter experience, try nighttime cross country skiing on lighted trails. Don’t have skis or a snowmobile? There are plenty of convenient and affordable places to rent everything you need for wintertime fun, not to mention all the great summer rentals available throughout the Iron Trail.
Our location — just three hours north of the Twin Cities — makes the Iron Trail an easy-to-get-to, low cost getaway any time, including winter! Check our web site or call for a free ski information and maps or information on Giants Ridge. When you’re ready to kick off your boots, we have an abundance of hotels, motels and year-round cabins where you can do just that. Relax in a sauna after a day on the trails or spend some downtime in a friendly restaurant. Indulge yourself! You’ve earned it!
