Snowmobiling & Skiing

SnowmobilingAny experienced snowmobiler knows that Vilas County, and particularly the northwest corner of Vilas, is where it's at for the finest in trails and conditions for great riding. The Lake Superior snow machine normally cranks out dependable snow from mid December to late March.  A major network of trails connects all northwoods towns with the "Big Snow Country" of the upper peninsula of Michigan.

Downhill Skiing...
The major downhill skiing areas of the Midwest are as close as a 30 minute drive.  Due to the number of ski destinations in close proximity to each other, visitors seldom battle the crowds, making these short day trips ideal for large groups and families just learning, as well as for the advanced skiers in your group.  For all of your Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding rental gear, visit our friend Mark Serwe at
Big Sno Outfitters (BSO), located in-between the hills in Bessemer, MI. 

Cross-Country Skiing...
Skiing - Downhill or Cross-countryMany cross-country skiing possibilities are available right outside the door, from groomed to ungroomed trails, and from traditional to skate skiing.  If heading out on your own isn’t a comfortable thought, check out the area’s premier Environmental Education, the North Lakeland Discovery Center, where cross country ski outings and instruction are frequently offered.  And, don't forget to check out the Discovery Center's other activities while you’re at it... the staff there always have something fun planned for whatever the season!  Other area ski and snowshoe trails abound throughout the Northwoods region.  One of our favorites (ungroomed) is the Catherine Wolter Wilderness Area, just minutes away.
