- Night Skiing – 1.5 km of lighted trails offer ski buffs the chance to keep going after sundown.
- Snowshoeing – Venture into the back-country or get off the beaten path when you strap on a pair of traditional or modern snowshoes. Explore the woods on your own, or follow one of Bearskin Lodge’s lakeside or deep woods groomed snowshoe trails.
- Broomball – All the fun of hockey without bulky equipment and contact – fun to play or just watch.
- Ice skating – The lake that we paddle in the summer provides a perfect surface to skate for winter fun. Our groomed ice rink is lighted, so the ice rink or pond hockey fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down.
- Mushing at Bearskin - Experience a dog sledding adventure into the deep wilderness at Bearskin Lodge on the Gunflint Trail this winter.
- Snowmobile Trails – Trails adjacent to Bearskin Lodge are designated by the USFS for cross country skiing and are not open for snowmobiling, but that doesn’t rule out having an exhilerating snowmobile experience while you visit our area. Several nearby resorts offer snowmobile rental and access to their trails; ask our front desk staff members to help you make a reservation. Or bring your own equipment and trailer it to one of these nearby designated snowmobile routes. http://www.boreal.org/RidgeRiders/
- Ice fishing – We’ll be honest: for some mysterious reason, ice fishing on East Bearskin Lake is surprisingly futile. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great “fresh caught” fish dinner while staying in your Bearskin cabin or lodge. Our front desk staff members will be happy to direct you to other nearby lakes with winter fishing “hotspots” for walleye and lake trout.
