Adventure Sports Thrill in the St. Croix Valley
Snow sports lovers rejoice. Your season is here. Historically, over 50 inches of snow makes its way to Taylors Falls, MN and St. Croix Falls, WI during winter. To some, that means packing it in and dreaming of spring, but not here. Here, we unpack. We bust out skis and snowboards and get ‘em waxed and ready. We inflate snow tubes and fat bike tires. We rev up snowmobiles and gas their tanks. Here, we gear up.
We want to share what makes us special!
For starters, we have ALL of the adventure without the long drive. Here you can enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, live music, waterparks, zip lines, boating, fishing sightseeing, arts, shopping, dining, and much more; all within a 45 minute drive from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Plan to stay overnight. We are not just for day trips anymore!
