Ski & Stay Vacations at Wildwood Resort

What makes a perfect day for a x-skier? The answer would likely include cross country skiing all day on beautiful trails and then cozying up to a fire in a warm, comfortable cabin. Cross county skiers can do exactly that during a winter vacation at Wildwood Resort! Both classic and freestyle skiing is available here as well as snowshoeing. There are 19 groomed, x-ski trails in Itasca County (some are lighted) totaling more than 200K of trails. They range from beginner to expert and Wildwood is centrally located to all of them. Do you have questions? Please contact us and we will be happy to answer them.

Beautiful, Quiet Cross Country Ski Trails

The Grand Rapids, MN area is located in Itasca County which is one of the largest counties in the state. That means that a winter x-skiing vacation at Wildwood Resort offers skiers a chance to explore breathtaking, backwoods Minnesota cross country ski trails. There are thousands of acres of pristine forest here allowing for miles and miles of Nordic skiing through heavy pine and hardwood forests, aspen-covered sidehills, across lowland swamps and lakes, and beside beautiful scenic overlooks. The varied terrain makes cross-country skiing enjoyable for the beginner, intermediate and expert.
