FALL & WINTER
In the wintertime, everyone can appreciate the quiet beauty of the Northwoods with its blanket of white snow.
Snowmobiling is tremendous on the 600 miles of groomed trails in the vast Chequamegon National Forest with plenty of rest stops along the way. Gas is sold at the resort and a heated garage is available in case of a sled breakdown. Two groomers are in our area to keep the trails in tip-top shape. Out of state snowmobile trail passes are sold at resort.
Cross country skiing is at its best with the Birkebiner Ski Trail and Rock Lake trails only 10-20 minutes from the resort. Eight kilometers of groomed ski trails lead out from the resort and there are numerous other trails in the area.
For added enjoyment, try our snowshoes or ice skating rink which is available in early winter. Set up your tip-ups for some ice fishing in front of the cabin or in many of the bays around the lake.
Several downhill ski areas are located within an hour’s drive from Mogasheen, such as Indianhead, Whitecap or Mt. Ashwabay.
During the fall months, hunters will find the Chequamegon National Forest a great hunting ground for deer, bear, turkey, grouse and duck. You can also hunt turkeys in the spring.
