WINTER IN WISCONSIN
Cold temperatures are what inspires our fire for winter activity. We’re too busy snowshoeing along the state’s hiking trails, flying downhill on our skis or snowboard and racing sleds down the biggest hill we can find in our neighborhood to even notice that it’s chilly.
Once the lakes freeze over, many of us hit the ice for fishing and a bonfire. Others meet up with friends and ride through the snowmobile capital of the world, Eagle River. We even have trails made exclusively for snow-friendly fat bikes, as well as winter rides and races throughout the state.
Wisconsin winter may be cold, but our love for its gentle snowfall, calm serenity and opportunity for adventure is more than warm.
