LANTERN-LIT XC SKIING AND SNOWSHOEING

January and February the Porcupine Mountains light up the XC Ski Trails with nearly 80 old-fashioned kerosene lanterns to illuminate a 1-mile trail for a unique and memorable experience. The ski trail is track-set for classic skiers, while snowshoers make their own trail adjacent to the lighted loop. Stop halfway around the loop at the warming shelter and join the park naturalist for a campfire and refreshments. The ski trail is rated "easy"; however, skiing and snowshoeing at night is always challenging. The trail is located off M-107 across from the downhill ski area. See the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park cross country ski trails map for the exact location within the park. If the weather is not favorable for skiing or snowshoeing, the event may be canceled. Please call ahead to inquire about cancellations at 906-885-5206
