Winter has finally arrived and with it, the magical ingredient – snow! We are excited to announce we have a jam-packed line up of winter activities that will be sure to please. Now the only ingredient missing is you!
The Pines Winter Recreation Center is now open and offers snowshoes and cross country ski rentals, so guests can meander through the trees and see the beauty of winter at it’s finest. Or if you prefer to ride through the scenery, Dog sled rides, family sleigh rides and the romantic Un Cheval (one horse sleigh) rides will be available throughout the winter weekends.
The beach may no longer be a place to catch a tan, but it still offers plenty of fun activities including a lighted broomball rink behind the Clubhouse Suite and a lighted skating and hockey rink on both Gull and Roy Lake. Icehouses, such as ‘Lil Grand View’ featured on WCCO last year, are also available for rent at an additional cost.
If you’re still craving more, there are many exciting opportunities offsite. Mt. Ski Gull, located just down the road from us, offers downhill skiing, snowboarding and tubing. Show your key card upon arrival and receive a 15% discount on your day of fun! If you feel the need for speed, hop on a snowmobile and meander through the woods. Check out our friends, Boats & Beyond Rental, for all your snowmobile needs!
At the end of the day, stop by M.V. Bakers for some delicious s’mores before going back to your “home away from home” to cozy up next to the fireplace and reminisce on your Grand View winter adventure.
