Rib Mountain State Park is home to the Granite Peak Ski Area offering seventy-four runs, seven new chairlifts, and state-of-the-art snowmaking. The Nine Mile Forest is a premiere cross-country skiing facility with 33km of groomed trails including lighted trails for nighttime skiing. Sylvan Hill is home to the longest tubing hill in the state with six runs, two towlines, and a comfortable chalet. Nearby you can snowshoe the Ice Age Trail or explore 750+ miles of snowmobile trails. Complimenting the city’s Northwoods feel is a world-class whitewater kayak course, a thriving arts community, and a brick-paved River District with specialty stores, restaurants, and attractions.
