Appreciate the Out-of-Doors.
Mother Nature has provided the Lake Vermilion area with enough snow this December to allow favorable ski trail conditions. The Minnesota DNR has cross country ski passes for sale. If you are 16 years of age or older, a DNR Ski Pass is required to use the 1700 miles of state trails. $3/day, $10/year, $25/3 years.
The DNR also has a web page dedicated to local snow and weather conditions. For current Lake Vermilion information go here .
