Skip the Stress, Grab the Skiis: When it comes to skiing, Milwaukee has trails for every level. Whether it is your first time putting on skis or if you’re zooming through trails, Hart Park is the perfect place for every outdoor lover and newbee alike!
Get Your (Snowshoe) Steps In: Prepare to close all your rings at Milwaukee County Park with snowshoeing trails for every distance that you’re ready to try!
Experience Winter In A Whole New Light: Experience the beauty of Milwaukee forests in a new candle-lit walk through Three Bridges Park trails. Warm up with the toasty campfires at the Fireside Plaza, enjoy your favorite comfort foods at food trucks such as Jamaican Kitchen or Rileys Good Dogs, sip on a warm mug of hot chocolate (of course, spiked is always an option) from Orenda Cafe - all while taking in the glowing beauty of Milwaukee.
Winter Surfing on the Lake: Surf’s up! Lake Michigan is home to a vibrant and growing freshwater surfing scene. Prime surfing season is in the winter when the wind and eaves are the strongest.
