WATCH: Why we love winter on the Range.
Watch and learn what winter’s all about on northeastern Minnesota’s Iron Range (spoiler alert: snowmobile trails and skiing). Thirty seconds isn’t really enough time to show it all, so this video only covers part of the story.
The Iron Range is centrally located to more than 2,000 miles of Minnesota snowmobile trail, including the legendary Arrowhead state snowmobile trail and the Taconite state snowmobile trail. Cruise through the Superior National Forest as you cover amazing terrain with all the straightaways, twist-n-turns, and hills-n-valleys you could want. Our groomers do the job right and keep the snowmobile trails in top shape. Just to make thing easy, for every Iron Range town, (that’s Hibbing, Chisholm, Mountain Iron, Buhl, Virginia, Eveleth, Gilbert, Biwabik, Aurora, Hoyt Lakes, Embarrass and Meadowlands), there’s a spur. Get in and out of dodge on well-groomed, easy-to-find trails. Make the most of trailside bars, restaurants and hotels and get the most fun out of your trip!
Snowmobile trails are only half of the story…
If you’re not a sledder, take a look at Giants Ridge Recreation Area, with top-notch ski school for all abilities, plus 35 alpine runs, two terrain parks, a tubing hill and play areas for the kids. Around the region, we’ve got hundreds of kilometers of nordic trails to try. Onsite resorts make it easy to get to the mountain, and if you’ve really got some skills, bring the trailer, too and hit the snowmobile trails from Giants Ridge Recreation Area. Go any direction for great terrain, scenery and winter fun. Get your winter trip info – including maps – today!
