Night Ski, Snowshoe, & Candle-lit Hike | Conditions Update

January 15, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Conditions Update: At present, we don’t have sufficient snow for snowshoeing or skiing. We expect to receive about an inch of snow by Friday evening. As of right now the hike is taking place and we suggest wearing boots with some manner of ice cleat (such as Yaktrax, which we sell in the Nature Store) as much of the snowy base has gradually turned to ice. Right now it looks like we have 1-1.5 inches of crusty ice and in order to snowshoe 4″ of packed snow is required to effectively use snowshoes without damaging the equipment.

Start your weekend right! Enjoy the beauty and serenity of a crisp snowy evening on skis or snowshoes. Traverse our trails, lighted by the soft glow of lanterns, or those trails lit only by the light of the moon and stars.

(Please call or check our website for current snow conditions before venturing out – event may need to be canceled due to ice or weather conditions.)

Trail & All-Access Members: FREE | Non-Members: $7

Price does not include equipment. You are absolutely welcome to bring your own snowshoes or skis, or make it easy and rent a a pair of our snowshoes! ($10 per hour for non-members, $5 per hour for Trail Pass members, and FREE for All-Access Members). Please call (262)375-2715 ahead of time to reserve a pair – we have a limited amount of snowshoes they will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
