Lantern Light Cross-Country Skiing Offered This Winter at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park

Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, located on the south shore of Lake Superior near Silver City in Ontonagon County, is offering cross-country skiing by lantern light again this winter.

“This place is incredible in the winter,” said DNR Park Interpreter Bob Wild. “What better way to see the park and experience winter, than by participating in one of these naturalist-led programs.”

Lantern Light Cross-Country Skiing: On Saturdays, Dec. 27 and 31, 2008, and Jan. 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31, 2009, from 6-9 p.m. EST; also Feb. 7, 14, 21 and 28 from 6:30-9 p.m. Old-fashioned kerosene lanterns illuminate the trail during this night ski. Lanterns are placed along the entire one-mile loop for a remarkable night skiing experience. Stop about halfway around the loop at the warming shelter where the park naturalist
will have a blazing fire going. This trail has an “easy” difficulty rating; however, skiing at night is always a challenge.

This program may be canceled due to weather. To inquire about cancellations call (906)885-5206.

All programs are free; however, all motor vehicles entering a Michigan state park or recreation area must display a valid Motor Vehicle Permit, available for purchase at the park entrance. Cost is $24 for a resident
annual and $6 for a resident daily. A nonresident annual is $29 and a nonresident daily is $8.

For more information about the event, the park, accessibility at this park, or persons with disabilities needing accommodations to attend this event, contact the park by calling 906-885-5275 (or TTY/TDD711 Michigan Relay Center for the hearing impaired) at least seven days prior to the event, or view information about the park here.
