Who’s Hooting?

Courtney Wright of the Northwoods Wildlife Center will bring some feathered friends along to help us appreciate these magnificent predators of the night. The program will begin with an indoor presentation followed by a guided trek on the trails to “hoot” for our resident owls. Skis/snowshoes are optional. Plan on being outside for about an hour. Experience Winter Park at its most secretive time.

Saturday, January 27th 6:00-8:00 pm

Blue Moon Bonfire

Once in a blue moon snowshoe hike! Snowshoe to the Wolf’s Den Shelter on the shared Mountain Goat/Snow Stomper trail starting at the tubing hill trailhead. Enjoy a bonfire, treats, and hot beverages while celebrating some unique celestial events. Blue moons, super moons, and lunar eclipses, oh my! Afterwards, head out (and up) on an enchanting candlelit evening hike along Mountain Goat snowshoe trail! This 1.4 mile loop winds up to the top of Squirrel Hill and passes underneath a historic fire lookout tower before heading down the backside and looping back around to Wolf’s Den Shelter.
