HUDSON, Wis. - Why stay in when you can OutWiGo? Join park staff and partners for OutWiGo Snow!, a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' winter recreation celebration at Willow River State Park on Saturday, Feb. 1 from noon to 4 p.m. Bundle up with family and friends for an afternoon of cross-country skiing, fat tire biking, snowshoeing, sledding, s'mores and more!

OutWiGo is a statewide initiative encouraging everyone to improve their overall health and wellness by getting out and active in the outdoors. From waterfall hikes to trails for bikes, you can recharge or go far at one of Wisconsin's state park properties.

OutWiGo Snow will offer activities including snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, sledding, naturalist activities and more. Snowshoe and cross-country ski rentals will be provided free of cost.

Outdoor demos of a variety of winter recreation skills and tips are scheduled for throughout the day. Although some complimentary sleds will be provided, participants are encouraged to bring their own sleds as well.

Complimentary s'mores supplies will be provided for those looking to refuel and warm up. Restrooms will be available throughout the property.

A $5 event admission fee (cash only) applies to participants ages 18 years and older. Participants of all ages are welcome. A 2020 Wisconsin State Park System vehicle admission sticker is also required for entry. Although admission stickers are available at the property entrance, advanced purchase is encouraged for you to get to the fun faster.
