We are so fortunate in Bayfield to be situated on the South Shore of the grand Lake Superior – this time of year provides lake effect snow, resulting in frequent snowfall, preserving the clean winter vista while also providing consistent snow for outdoor play. With this in mind, we are happy to provide out top 5 Winter Adventure recommendations:
2. Mt Ashwaybay Ski Area provides downhill skiing, over 40 km of beautiful XC Ski and snowshoe trails. Just up 2.5 miles up the hill from Pinehurst Inn.
3. As safety allows, visit the Mainland Sea Caves. Magnificent winter landscapes unique to Lake Superior and rugged shoreline. Typically accessible late February. Always check the National Park Service website for current conditions and safety recommendations.
4. Make your way to Madeline Island! Whether by ferry, windsled, or ice road, this is a true adventure.
5. While on Madeline, head out if able to Big Bay State Park for some great snowshoeing along the sandstone cliffs.
All of these activities will get you out to incredibly beautiful areas, view of Lake Superior and the Apostle Island, serene hardwood and pine forests. Some simple ways to embrace winter in your search for adventure.
