Cross Country Skiing

Located in the heart of the top cross country ski trails in the Midwest, there’s nowhere else you’ll want to stay this winter. Ski passes are required but can be purchase online at the MN DNR website. Want to find the best spots that only the locals know about? Check out our Cross-Country Skiing Page.

State Parks

One of the best amenities of Grand Superior Lodge is our location, right on the North Shore of Lake Superior and in close proximity to North Shore State Parks. Don’t let the winter weather prevent you from making a trip to one of the state parks this year – they are just as beautiful in the winter as they are in the summer. So, grab a pair of our snowshoes from the front desk on your way out and experience the state parks in a different way this year. Check out our State Park Package!

Fat Biking

With the MN DNR’s project to provide safe trail conditions for fat tire bikers, you don’t have to worry about trying to find safe trails yourself. In fact, Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, which is right up the road from our resort, offers 8.7 miles of groomed trails specifically for fat tire biking. If you want to give it a try or don’t want to bring your bike up with you, stop by our front desk to find out more on where to rent fat tire bikes and how you can get a free state park day pass. Learn More.


If you love to walk or hike, you’ll be a natural at snowshoeing. It’s all the enjoyment of a winter walk without sinking in the snow up to your thighs, and snowshoes are complimentary at the Front Desk! Learn More.
