Some people get bogged down by how cold a Wisconsin winter can be, but a true Wisconsinite knows that the season can also be magical. If you know the right places to go, and what to do, it can be the best time of the year. Eau Claire is a perfect example of a city that wholeheartedly embraces winter and all it can offer. Get ready to bundle up and head to this ‘Midwest Indie’ city for your next “wintermission” with these must-do activities!
No Wisconsin winter would be complete without the classics like: sledding, ice skating, skiing, snowshoeing, and snowboarding. All of these (and more!) can be pursued in the many parks Eau Claire has to offer. Pinehurst Park is considered a hidden gem in this area, but shouldn’t be for much longer! It’s the quintessential park for all Wisconsin winter activities. However, if you’re looking for something a little more adrenaline filled, head over to Silver Mine Ski Hill. This is one of the 6th largest ski jump hills in the U.S. and skiers can jump up to 300 feet!
