Swedetown Winter Trails Day is Sunday, January 15

Posted on

Winter Trails Day is a national celebration with over 100 events throughout country. As part of our 2017 event, Swedetown is celebrating (and showing off!) the new Prinoth Husky trail groomer. It’s nine feet tall with a 228 horsepower Mercedes Benz engine and a big wide high speed tiller with dumbo ears. Who doesn’t love big machines?
Free skiing and snowshoeing offered all day, normal day pass rate of $10 is not charged on Winter Trails Day. If you have a membership at other local trails, this will be a great time to visit Swedetown and try all the great trails. Swedetown Trails Club members will be on hand to suggest trails to explore.

Swedetown member already? Bring along a friend to try skiing or snowshoeing. From noon to 4 p.m. there will be free snowshoe and ski rentals provided by Cross Country Sports of Calumet. Maybe you want to try some different equipment yourself. First come, first served for rental equipment, as available. Come to the Swedetown Chalet to check out equipment. 
Free coffee, hot chocolate and snacks from noon to 5 p.m. Stop in and say hi! Chalet is open until 5 p.m.and trail lights are on until 9 p.m.
We will hold Trails Day on January 15 even if it snows a little (or a lot). Dress appropriately for the conditions. Swedetown Winter Trails Day  is co-sponsored by Cross Country Sports of Calumet and the Swedetown Trails Club.
