Activities to Enjoy Over Christmas in Minnesota Gull Lake
While some holiday travelers might prefer to be snuggled up indoors sipping hot cocoa, those that are looking forward to downhill fun will find plenty to be enjoyed at Gull Lake. This destination is home to Mount Ski Gull which opened in the 1980s and continues to provide downhill skiers, snowboarders, and tubes with incredible options for outdoor adventure. When nothing is better suited to a holiday away than a focus on skiing, this is the place to be. The ski resort also hosts a large chalet where visitors can enjoy a variety of snacks when they’ve worked up an appetite on the slopes or cozy up next to two over-sized fireplaces that are bound to please. When you are out on the slopes this holiday season, you can count on them being meticulously maintained. Experienced skiers will find Mount Ski Gull to provide just the right challenge while newcomers to the sport over Christmas can find plenty of opportunities for lessons along the way.
The same trails that provide for exceptional hiking in the summer months through Gull Lake and the surrounding areas transition seamlessly into world-class snowmobiling terrain in the winter. If you’re the type of holiday traveler that can’t wait to explore at thrilling speeds, this might be just the route you’ll want to go this Christmas. For a more tranquil time outdoors over the holidays, consider ice fishing on Gull Lake or one of the surrounding lakes and ponds that dot this landscape.
Of course, those looking forward to more traditional opportunities for holiday fun will find exactly what they’re searching for in the Sertoma Winter Wonderland event. Running through December 31, 2020, visitors can drive through a collection of 75 captivating and colorful light displays put on for guest enjoyment.
