On Minnesota's Gunflint Trail, this is prime time. Resist the urge to stay inside and wait for spring; head north now for the best cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling of the season.

What to do: Ski 200 kilometers of superbly groomed trails into April. Snowshoe into the Boundary Waters and on trails. Go on a horse-drawn sleigh ride
