or should we say, "Minne-snow-ta?"

No bugs + few people = true solitude

Sawtooth Outfitters offers canoe, kayak,
bike, cross country and downhill ski rentals.

Hundreds of miles of groomed ski trails, some are even lighted so you can ski day or night.
Dog Sledding
Dog Sledding Adventures
From dog sledding courses or day trips, to overnight excursions in the Boundary Waters, don't overlook this exciting opportunity.
Ice Fishing
Avoid the crowds of anglers and the bugs. Enjoy the action of winter fishing through the ice. Some resorts offer fish house rentals and/or guide service.
Snow Shoeing
Snow Shoeing
Fun for the whole family, great for those who don't ski. Stay on top of the snow while exploring the forest the easy way with snow shoes.
