As winter has arrived, now’s the time to start planning your snow trip away. Dust down your skis, sharpen your skates, grab your hats and gloves and we’ll whisk you away to the best places to see snow this winter (in our opinion)
Once the snow starts falling in Michigan it won’t be stopping anytime soon. From Detroit and Lansing through to the Great Lakes, there are plenty of places to see and enjoy the snow in Michigan. With a selection of mountains and resorts to choose from, this is the perfect place to visit for an action-packed snow holiday. From Crystal Mountain with its eco-friendly ski resort through to Nubs Nob Ski Resort, there are plenty of runs for the experienced (and not so experienced skiers and snowboarders). For the ice-skaters amongst you why not grab your skates and head to Ann Arbor Ice Cube and for the hockey enthusiasts head to the Detroit Skating Club.
If there’s one thing that Ontario is known for, it’s its snow. When the clocks change, you can guarantee it won’t be long before the temperature drops, and the snow starts falling. There are plenty of outdoor activities in Ontario to keep you busy which include ice skating on the Rideau Canal, ice fishing, dog sledding and skiing and snowboarding in the mountains. With snowmobiling being a popular past time, there are an array of trails for you to explore with a day out in the snow. With so much choice you won’t know where to start!
With snow starting to fall in October the snow season then normally runs until March, giving you plenty of opportunities to hit the slopes and experience all that Wisconsin has to offer. With an array of resorts and slopes for all levels there’s plenty to experience with all the family. If you’re not a fan of the slopes, then why not venture to the ice caves at the Apostle Island National Lakeshore or enjoy ice fishing at Lake Winnebago. For the spectators out there, you can watch the Merrill Sled Dog Race in January or board a snow train with the Mid-Continent Railway Snow Train taking you through the winter wonderland of Sauk County.
When the cold wind blows in Chicago you’ll feel it through to your bones, so it’s time to wrap up warm, dig out the hat and gloves as you set off exploring the windy city. With snow usually arriving in November through to April, this gives you plenty of time to visit. If ice skating is your thing, then head to the picturesque Millennium Park situated close to the river for some stunning shore views. McCormick Tribune Ice Rink also offers sweeping views of the city skyline. When there’s enough snow to hit the slopes, head to Rockford for the Snow Park at Alpine Hills for skiing, snowboard and tubing fun.
