First of all relax, Saturday’s forecast is high of 26 degrees!
Get outside to celebrate and enjoy winter! REI experts, Fort Snelling State Park and local outdoor organizations will provide free activities that show how fun winter can be. Activities include: snowshoeing, cross country skiing, skijoring, ice fishing, ice sculpting, naturalist guided hikes, traditional ice harvesting, winter camping info, learn to build a quinzee (like an igloo made of snow), kids snow ranger activities and much more! Equipment is provided. We’ll have hot cocoa and a big bonfire too. Checkpoint Minnesota, a state wide scavenger hunt, will also be there with a mobile checkpoint. Check the link below for details on this fun program. Even if there isn’t much snow we’ll still have lots of fun outdoor activities. Join us to celebrate winter in Minnesota! The event is free, but State Park vehicle permit fees still apply – $5 day permit, $25 annual permit.
