NATURAL, WILD, REMOTE: WINTER AT ITS BEST

UMD has partnered with the Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center for over two decades to offer pristine outdoor opportunities for UMD students and the community. Winter is a great time to explore what Boulder Lake has to offer.

SNOWSHOE AND CROSS COUNTRY SKI
Located 18 miles north of Duluth, there are easy and advanced groomed trails for every level. Take a break at the "Wolfski's Ski Den" warming shack with free hot chocolate and cider. It's open daily sunrise to sunset. In addition to the 21 kilometers of classical skiing, there are 11 kilometers groomed for skate-skiing. Trails are groomed Fridays and Mondays, and/or as needed. No fee or Minnesota State Ski Pass is required. Snowshoe and Ski Maps
