When snow covers the Bayfield Peninsula, attention turns from Lake Superior to the hills. That's where there are miles of trails for skiing, snowshoeing, mushing and sledding.

What to do: Ski downhill at Mount Ashwabay. Ski and snowmobile at Mount Valhalla. Go on a dog-sled trip. Hike the blufftop Lakeshore Trail above the ice caves near Cornucopia.

Details: For more, see Bayfield in winter.
