Minnesota North Shore: Skiing, Snowmobiling, Snowshoe Hiking, Snow Reports, Winter Festivals and more

two harbors in winter

Feb 28, 2016. Good snow depths along most of the North Shore for skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Best conditions are a mile or so inland. See more Snow & Weather Report Details here.


For outdoor recreation, snowshoeing hiking trails is our favorite wintertime activity along the North Shore. Many others enjoy downhill skiing at Lutsen or Spirit Mountain, cross country skiing in the state parks and national forest trails, snowmobiling along the many excellent trails the entire length of the north shore, ice fishing, and other winter festival activities.

Below are a few of the Minnesota North Shore winter recreation and events, plus a snow conditions report links, we know are taking place from Duluth, MN to Grand Marais. Some of the dates for winter 2015-16 events have yet to be posted. When they are we'll update our calendar.

Winter is a great time to enjoy the North Shore; you can see views and sights not easily seen during the other seasons. Here's some North Shore winter recreation photos and scenes from an earlier winter, where we enjoyed a wintertime visit to some of our favorite hiking trails on snowshoes and sampling some of our favorite restaurants. We returned in a later year . . . to catch the John Beargrease Race in January. - Reinhold Development - 2015
