Four Fantastic Seasons...

  • Winter

    Ski, snowboard, snowmobile, snowshoe or just build a snowman. In this Lake Superior snowbelt, we are the happy recipients of 200+ inches of snow a year. That's over 16 feet!

  • Spring

    Spring thaws of our incredibly deep snow cover bring area waterfalls to life and turn gentle creeks into raging rivers. Trillium blossums carpet the forest floor. Songbirds return and fill the air with the sounds of spring after a quiet winter.

  • Summer

    Miles of pristine Lake Superior beaches are destinations for swimming, agate hunting, sailing, kayaking and simple relaxation. There is no shortage of hiking trails or secluded fishing spots.

  • Fall

    In mid to late September, dense forest canopies begin to transform into red, orange and yellow beacons. Salmon and trout begin their run to spawn while resident bald eagles perch in trees along the rivers.
