Winter is a very special season with five major ski resorts within 45 minutes. A sixth ski area, Mt Holiday, Snowmobilersoffers intermediate skiing and is only five minutes from Spider Lake Retreat. These facilities offer cross-country skiing too, but just minutes away is the VASA Trail and the Sand Lakes Quiet Area. If the skiing is great, the snowmobiling is outstanding. Right out your door is access to hundreds of miles of groomed trails. With annual snow fall totaling 150-200 inches, there’s usually plenty of snow to enjoy in the winter months. Trailer parking is available.
