Summer is nice, but let’s be honest: you’re more of a winter kind of person. There’s nothing which excites you more than pictures of peaceful, quiet snowfalls, a mug of hot chocolate by the cozy fireplace, and cool air against your face as you race down the hill on your sled. Fortunately, you’re not alone. We love winter as well! We especially love winter here in beautiful Wisconsin. There are plenty of winter activities in Wisconsin, no matter where you are. Of course, we prefer all the great things to do here in Bayfield! We’ve written about a few of them before, in fact! So if you’re looking to spend your winter days with us, here are some of the best winter activities in Wisconsin.
The Best Winter Activities in Wisconsin
Sledding, Tubing, and Skiing!
Of course we can’t have a list like this and not include everyone’s favorite winter sports! There are slopes all over the state you can check out, and all of them offer thrills as well as gorgeous winter scenery. Here in Bayfield, of course, we have Mt. Ashwabay. Be sure and check out the special tubing slopes. We hear they’re amazing!
Snowmobile Through Nature
During the summer, Wisconsin offers a nearly endless amount of hiking and walking trails. At wintertime, some of them offer the chance to explore the same scenery on the back of a snowmobile! Be sure and ask at the trail lodge whether these vehicles are available to rent.
The Lake Superior Sea Caves
Wintertime is really the best time to visit the Lake Superior sea caves. The ice is thick enough to walk on (please be safe and check beforehand) allowing you to walk or snowshoe up to the caves for a close look. These are the kinds of experiences you just can’t get from the deck of a boat!
There’s lots of fish available all year round at Lake Superior. As expected, some of them can only be found in the cold wintertime. Grab a mug of hot cider, bundle up and get ready to reel them in!
Ice Skating and Hockey!
No rinks required. Out here, we like to skate beneath the winter afternoon sky. Lace up those skates, grab that puck and sticks, and get ready for a breathlessly fun time skating outdoors in beautiful Wisconsin. There’s plenty of places to do it!
