SKI OR SNOWSHOE BY CANDLELIGHT AT ZIPPEL BAY STATE PARK ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 2019
Experience Lake of the Woods in a whole new light. On Saturday, January 5, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. till 8 p.m. Zipple Bay Park will host a candlelight ski. Luminaries will line more than a mile of ski and snowshoe trails, and if the sky is clear the moonlight will help to light the way through the pines. The groomed ski trail starts at the trail center and is suitable for beginner-level skiers or snowshoers of all ages.
Meet at the residence, located just behind the park office. A limited number of skis and snowshoes will be available for free checkout
Snacks and refreshments will be provided in the trail center by the Zippel Bay Friend’s Group
Whether you prefer classical or skate skiing, Minnesota state parks have many miles of groomed cross-country ski trails for you!
