Top 4 Winter Activities in Lake Geneva

09 Jan, 2015

Winter can be harsh in Southeastern Wisconsin. With sub-zero temperatures and multiple feet of snow and ice on the ground you may be tempted to stay home and hibernate until spring.

This guy had the right idea!

As tempting as is it to stay toasty warm inside your home, we dare you to come out and explore all there is to do during the winter at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa. To help motivate you a little more here are our top four choices for having fun this winter.

1. Learn a new Snow Sport.

The Mountain Top at Grand Geneva is the Midwest’s most family-friendly ski hill. With Learn to Ski or Snowboard packages, a friendly staff of certified instructors and learning programs all winter long, this is the perfect place to conquer the slopes together and learn at your own pace.

2. Take on the trails

Did you know that there is over 1,300 acres of Wisconsin Country side to explore at Grand Geneva? Take on the trails this winter with options like snowshoeing,  cross country skiing, sleigh rides and horse back riding. Don’t worry, if you get too cold on the trails you can stop into Leinenkugel’s Mountain Top Lodge and warm up by the fireplace with an Irish Coffee or enjoy 1/2 price draft beers on Monday Mountains of Savings.

It's so beautiful, you'll almost forget about the cold weather... almost!

3. Attend a festival

Winter Carnival is an annual festival at The Mountain Top where your friends and family can enjoy a day filled with skiing, snowboarding and fun snow activities! Held the same weekend as Lake Geneva’s Winterfest and US National Snow Sculpting Competition, there is plenty to do for the whole family! Check out the fun from last year in the video below:

4. Warm up

Have you ever been outside in the cold for so long that you find yourself wondering what it would be like to be a marshmallow roasting over an open flame? Well we have been that marshmallow and it is WONDERFUL. But don’t take our word for it, book the Toasty Marshmallow Massage at The WELL Spa and find out what it’s like. Massage not your thing? Take a look at some of the other amazing FarmHouse Fresh seasonal treatments and warm up those icicles that you once called toes.

Don't forget the whirlpool and sauna, sure to chase away the cold.
