Insider's tips

Have you ever experienced the exhilaration of racing down a good snow hill, exploring the backwoods by snowshoe, or taking a peaceful winter walk under a moonlit night?

In the upper Midwest, winter lasts a while. The days are short, and the nights are longer. But the fresh, cold air can feel pretty incredible when you’re cooped up inside for too long.

In the last of the winter days, before the sun starts to warm and all the snow melts, we find ways to embrace our winter season here in the St. Croix Valley with a few special events.


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. We dust off winter jackets, snowpants, long underwear, hats, gloves, mittens, wool socks, boots… Here, we gear up. Winter is upon us and we have no intention of hibernating.
