    Cross-Country Skiing at ABR over New Year’s Weekend — Ironwood, MI

    Winter Trips Cross Country Skiing Winter Camping

    The U.P. gets much more snow—and sooner than we do, so we are virtually guaranteed great ski conditions.

    Both ABR and Wolverine, near Ironwood, MI, have a nice mix of trails for everyone including: skate, classic, and snowshoeing.

    We’ll be staying 3 nights (heading up Friday morning, returning Monday evening) in a house near Ironwood, Michigan — which is ~15 minutes from the XC ski trails.

    North Shore Trek — Cook County, MN

    Winter Trips Cross Country Skiing

    I have skied the past two North Shore Treks and am registered this year for the March 3-8 North Shore Trek. I estimate skiing 100 km in the first 2 1/2 days, followed by a day of rest (with great ski trails available), then 40 km from Bearskin Lodge to Gunflint Lodge. We could use people to shuttle cars who don’t want to ski the full distance each day.
