Govn Thompson Park Candelight Ski & Hike - Feb 18, 2017
Governor Thompson State Park will hold a candlelight ski and hike on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017. The park and trails will be lit by candle luminaries and accented with ice sculptures from 6 to 9 p.m.. Skiers can take an easy 1-mile loop candlelit trail groomed for both classic (diagonal striding) and skate skiing as it weaves through the woods.
Non-skiers are welcome to hike another 1-mile candlelit trail with scenic views over Woods Lake. Hikers, snowshoers and pets are not allowed on the ski trail, but are welcome on the hiking trail. Warming fires and hot chocolate will be available for everyone in the Woods Lake Shelter.
State park admission stickers are required and can be purchased at the park office. Trails start at the Woods Lake Picnic Area off of Paust Lane, 1.5 miles west of Parkway Road off Ranch Rd. For more information contact the park office at 715-757-3979
