Candlelight Ski

About the Candlelight Ski

Each year around the holiday break, Northwoods Nordic hosts an evening of casual skiing and conversation at the Northwoods Community trails located just across from Rhinelander High School.

Luminaries , kettles of hot chocolate and coffee, a warm campfire, moon-lit skies, casual conversation, and gentle trails highlight this event. 

It's the prefect time to get the family out and to enjoy the beauty of the northwoods.
