At Minocqua Winter Park & Nordic Center, we work throughout the spring, summer, and fall to prepare our trail system, equipment, and buildings. We budget carefully for the ski season, and we open our non-profit business as soon as there’s groomable, skiable snow.

Minocqua Winter Park is about a 15-minute drive from downtown Minocqua via US 51 and Wisc. Hwy 70 West. Our physical address is:
7543 Squirrel Hill Road
Minocqua, WI 54548
GPS Navigation Users, Take Note
If you are traveling from the south and following instructions from a turn-by-turn GPS system, you may be directed to exit US Hwy 51 in Hazelhurst, WI, by turning left onto Oneida Street or Lower Kaubashine Road and to take the backroads to Minocqua Winter Park. While this is the fastest way when the roads are dry in the summer, this is typically not the fastest (nor the safest) route in winter as the gravel roads may not be plowed, as many of these backroads become snowmobile trails during the snow season. Please follow the directions from downtown Minocqua, Wisconsin, detailed below.
From Minocqua by Car
From US Hwy 51, turn onto Wisconsin Hwy 70 West and travel 6.8 miles. Then turn left onto Squirrel Lake Road and go 4.5 miles to Scotchman Lake Road and follow the signs into the park via Squirrel Hill Road.
