Trek Hundreds of Miles of Cross Country Ski and Snowshoeing Trails
With an average annual snowfall of 45 inches and over 700 groomed cross country ski trails, Wisconsin makes the perfect place to embrace the winter weather. Nothing beats cabin fever quite like a refreshing trek with sunlight or candlelight twinkling on the ski trails (yep, some spots offer nighttime skiing) in the brisk winter air. Cross country skiing in Wisconsin includes hot cocoa waiting at the end of the trail.
Snowshoeing is a growing sport in Wisconsin not to mention a great workout that doesn’t require a ton of technical skill or knowhow. Snowshoeing is an easy way to explore spaces and places touched only by Old Man Winter’s snowy wand. Wisconsin provides more than 250 snowshoeing trails and locations offering the perfect backdrop for casual trekkers, wildlife photographers, and naturalists. Unless specifically marked and groomed for another use, most snowshoe trails are open and ready for snowshoers throughout the winter season.
