February , 2021: Candlelight Ski and Snowshoe
Due to Covid-19 concerns, we have not yet decided on a Candlelight Ski and snow shoe event. Candles would normally light two miles of trails including a part of the snow shoe trail. Grills, picnic tables, and a bonfire are provided. Trail passes are not required for this event, which is sponsored by the Brule River State Forest with volunteer assistance from the Brule Valley Ski Club.
