Curling, Mesabi Style

For some, curling is as much a part of winter as the cold temps. Fortunately, on the Mesabi Iron Range, there are plenty of places for long time enthusiasts to play, and newcomers to learn. Curlers come in all ages, and many leagues abound across the region, offering practice nights, “learn to curl” events, bonspiels (team competitions) and more. Spectators are always welcome, too.

Curling leagues, fun nights, bonspiels (curling competitions) and more are hosted at three main club facilities based in Eveleth, Chisholm and Hibbing. These two have active websites and responsive members:

Curl Mesabi (Eveleth-based) and Hibbing Curling Club.

Don’t be shy! Curlers aren’t!
