Exploring in Fresh Powder: Snowshoeing may have been around forever, but there’s a good reason it’s still so popular!

You won’t even notice you’re getting a great workout!

Catching that Record Holder On The Ice: You can’t visit the Northwoods without trying to catch a fish out of a frozen lake! The cold doesn’t stop angling up north, it just gets more interesting. Yes, when the lakes freeze over, you can find us (and our vehicles!) on the ice, bundled up and enjoying the sport. You can even try out an ice fishing tournament on your visit!

Moseying Down Main: From finding gifts to that extra-special accent for your home, there’s nothing like spending an afternoon browsing the unique shops on a quaint small-town main street. Visit Chippewa Falls Main Street for a collection of shops you can’t find anywhere else.
Taking It All In: The sun rises later up north, especially in the winter. You don’t have to get up too early to enjoy the stunning beauty of a crisp winter sunrise. Sip your coffee with breathtaking views you won’t soon forget (and make sure to have your camera ready!).
