Winter Has Arrived

The temperature has finally dropped, and stayed, below freezing and the ground is covered in white; it’s winter! The first snowfall came about a week before Thanksgiving.  By the weekend before Turkey day, the lakes started to freeze.  Emotions are mixed in the office.  Half of us are excited for the cross-county skiing and snow-shoeing season to begin.  The other half is dreading the shoveling and slippery driving.  We all enjoy winter in different way.  Below is one of the ways that Beth likes to enjoy winter.

Beth stays warm during the first snowfall.

Beth and some of the Fair Hills, Lake Five and Wildflower crew have been busy clearing debris from the trails around Lake Five.  The final day of debris burning happened to coincide with the first major snowfall.  At least Beth stayed warm!

Fair Hills may close for the winter but Five Lakes Resort is open all year long!  Cabins 8, 8A & 9 stay open during the cold winter months.  There are still plenty of things to do in the winter at Lake Five.  There are miles and miles of groomed cross-country ski and snow-shoe trails, good ice fishing conditions and plenty of time to relax and keep warm.  Summer isn’t the only time to have fun at Lake Five.  Winter is a great time to explore the lake and trails, the towns of Detroit Lakes and Vergas and relax in a warm cabin.  Don’t forget to check out for winter information!
