Events in the next 3 days

  1. Janboree

    Waukesha, WI Jan 14 - Jan 23

  3. Snowflake Ski-Jumping Tournament

    Westby, WI Jan 21 - Jan 22

    At the top of a hill that's the equivalent of a 41-story skyscraper, watch jumpers fly by at 55 mph. It's fun to watch because the jump is built onto the side of a coulee, and spectators can climb it and watch from the top. There are hot drinks and food at the bottom.

    In this town on the Mackinac Straits, there's a snow-sculpting competition, sleigh rides, a poker run and, on Saturday, outhouse races.

  5. Candlelight ski/snowshoe/hike

    Around the region, Jan 21 - Jan 22

    There's nothing better than skiing (or snowshoeing or hiking) through a twinkling forest or across a luminary-lined lake. There's usually a bonfire and hot chocolate to enjoy afterward.

  6. Winterfest

    Amana, IA Jan 22

    Go on a beer and wine walk or compete in ham-throwing, log-sawing, wreath-tossing, the Amana Freezer Run/Walk or for the best beard. There will also be ice sculpting and chainsaw-carving.
