Snow Spots in Wisconsin

In our past post we talked about skijoring, a winter sport that combines dog sledding with skiing. Well that got us thinking about all the other great snow sports in Wisconsin. Whether you snowboard, snowmobile, or ski, there’s no shortage of winter fun.


Wisconsin is home to 25,000 miles of pristine snowmobile trails weaving through forests, lakes, fields and villages. Eagle River is known as the Snowmobile Capital of the World, but Boulder Junction, Hurley, and Minocqua are other popular snowmobiling locations.

Cross-Country Skiing

With more than 700 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails in Wisconsin, you can slide or skate on everything from challenging Olympic-level tracks to flat, woodland trails. Plus, come February, Wisconsin is home to the largest cross-country ski marathon in North America – the American Birkebeiner. For trail suggestions and maps, click here!

There are 445 runs at 30 downhill skiing and snowboarding sites throughout the state. Devil’s Head Resort in Merrimac boasts a recently installed quad chair lift, but Alpine Valley, Tyrol Basin and Wilmot Mountain also attract visitors from all over during the winter months.

You can find more resources, including trail maps and events, on our website. Now, get out there and have some fun!
