Hibernation is not part of our vocabulary.

It’s true that Minnesota winters have a bit of a reputation. Even natives are bound to crack a few jokes about the length and cold of the season. But all joking aside, the state is a paradise when the snow begins to fall. Winter brings a special beauty to Minnesota, a pristine quietness, and endless invitations to play. Whether you’re in the mood for gliding along a wooded trail, carving up the slopes, or trekking along a frozen river, the snowy outdoors are beckoning. Hole up? Not around here. Minnesotans are having too much fun with their snowboards, sleds, skis, and snowshoes.
