Description: Get outside to celebrate and enjoy winter! Saturday, January 11th 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, geocaching, naturalist guided hikes, learn traditional ice harvesting, play a snow snakes game, winter camping info, learn to build a quinzee and much more! Equipment is provided. We'll provide hot cocoa and a big bonfire to warm you up. Even if there isn't much snow we'll still have lots of fun outdoor activities. Bring the family out to celebrate winter in Minnesota!
The event is free, but State Park vehicle permit fees still apply - $5 day permit, $25 annual permit.
