Fall Work Weekend 2014 | $99 per person
As always, work weekend 2013 was fun. Work weekend 2014 starts Friday, October 31, which makes it the perfect getaway for people who want something fun to do over Halloween weekend that doesn’t involve a costume. We promise to fill your trick or treat bag with a little Halloween candy!
Join the Bearskin crew for the final trimming on Bearskin’s miles and miles of wilderness Ski Trails. Check into your Bearskin cabin Friday night. Join the crew Saturday morning, November 1, on the trails for final hand trimming. Work until 1:00, then head back to your cabin for a late lunch. Join us Saturday night for dinner in the main lodge. Checkout on Sunday morning, November 3. All for only $99/person. Of course, we expect a little trail clearing work from you in exchange for the great price, but we promise the emphasis will be on the “weekend” not “work.”

“Value Season:” the lowest rates of the the year start October 5th
The best rates of the year start on October 5th and last through mid-December. It’s a great opportunity to get away from daily life at a bargain rate. Fall and early winter are outstanding times for hiking and wildlife viewing in our area. There are fewer visitors everywhere, so you have our world a little more to yourselves at this time of year.
After October 31, most restaurants and many businesses in the area close down. Of course, Bearskin will still offer our homemade Take & Bake pizzas, so who needs a restaurant! All cabins and lodges at Bearskin have full kitchens, so bring your groceries and make a special meal during your visit.

Ready to tie the knot, but can’t figure out where? Have a Wilderness Wedding at Bearskin Lodge. Bearskin has a wedding officiant who is ready and willing to do your ceremony in the woods, on an island, up on a bluff, in a dog sled or, as in this classic old Bearskin photo, paddling a canoe.
