Yes, we get a lot of snow in da' U.P... but don't let that stop you from coming to Grand Marais in winter!
Groomed locally by the Grand Marais Sno-Trails club, snowmobilers enjoy miles of beautiful trails, laid out by the DNR. For more information about snowmobiling in the area and trail reports visit: Grand Marais Sno-Trails Beach Park motel is a popular location for snowmobilers, plenty of room for trailers and close to the trail in town.
Try your hand at ice-fishing on the bay and maybe you will land a tasty meal or two of fresh caught fish.
Ski groomed cross country ski trails, or snowshoe, through School Forest or the Sable Falls area for a beautiful, peaceful experience - really get away from it all!
Scheduled for February 16-19 in 2017, check out the annual UP 200 Dog Sled race that comes through Grand Marais. Cheer competitors as they arrive at the Grand Marais checkpoint. This event is a qualifying race for the Iditarod. Local events at the community center often include a pie sale and a silent auction.
