If you’re in North Dakota this winter, or plan to be, y0u should know that there’s no shortage on the fun to be had. While tourists can always enjoy the dining, shopping, and other interior attractions that North Dakota has to offer, winter is the only time of year where you can engage in some winter sports and activities outside. Take advantage of the snow and cold when you visit by trying one (or all) of the following.
Cross-Country Skiing and Snowshoeing
The parks, rivers, and Badlands of North Dakota make for some spectacular trails that are great for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.
Just set your RV up on the shore and tread out onto the ice for some of the best ice fishing in the country. North Dakota’s lakes and rivers are full of yellow perch, northern pike, and walleye. Try Devils Lake, Icelandic State Park, Lake Metigoshe State Park, or Lakes Sakakawea and Audubon.
With more than 2,800 miles of groomed snowmobile trails plus several hundred more less developed trails, North Dakota has no shortage of places to explore with your snowmobile. Travel through the forests of Turtle Mountain and Pembina Gorge or the valleys of Sheyenne, Missouri, or Red River. The Badlands are also open to snowmobiles, so be sure to check them out too.
Downhill Skiing and Sledding
While North Dakota doesn’t have mountain resorts, the hills are more than large enough for some solid skiing and sledding opportunities. They’re also good for snowboarding and tubing.
