So grab your helmets and winter gear for an exciting Minnesota winter getaway!

Minnesota is pretty notorious for the copious amounts of snow that we get throughout the winter season. Naturally we found some of the best ways to actually enjoy it while it’s here. During the summer, Lake Mille Lacs is surrounded by miles and miles of ATV/UTV trails. However, once the snow hits, they turn into some of the best snowmobiling trails in Minnesota. These well-groomed trails range in difficulty and run through multiple areas with great stops to warm up with a meal or drinks. Several groups around the area maintain and care for the trails to make sure they are top-quality and easy to enjoy. Plus the views are incredible! 

Snowmobile trails in Minnesota are open from December 1st to April 1st and are open to the public. There is a fantastic app to map out your trail route called the Polaris Ride Command App. Be sure to download the app on the phones of everyone you are riding with in case of spotty phone signal, and we suggest screen-shotting the map if you need to look at it without signal.
