❄️🎿🏒⛸ A Winter Whiteout Celebration in the Lower 48’s Most Remote Town

 👁🍿📽➞ Lake City Ice Park

Have you ever thought about visiting Lake City? Maybe not, considering it’s the most remote town in the continental U.S. But that’s what makes it so incredible!

Actually get away from it all in this outdoor recreationist’s dream. Once in the spotlight for its resident cannibal Alfred Packer, Lake City is again making waves thanks to its incredible winter recreation opportunities.

Imagine, if you will, an in-town ice park (right next to the brewery no less), a ski hill that costs $20 per day (that includes gear), and over 100 miles of groomed trails along the continental divide. Yep, the secret that is Lake City is getting out, and this year, the town has put together a month-long event to commemorate everything it has for Colorado’s winter-loving friends.

Lake City’s Winter Whiteout starts January 26th with a Pond Hockey Tournament on Lake San Cristobal and ends March 2nd with the Annual Matt Milski Memorial Ski Race.

Every weekend in between features an event that showcases Lake City’s winter wonderland. ➞ See full schedule here. These events include:

·         Duel Slalom Ski Races

·         The Annual Lake City Ice Climbing Festival

·         The 4th Annual Cannibal Snowshoe Race

·         The Lake City Ice Fishing Derby

·         The Platinum Paddle Pond Hockey Tournament

·         The Lake San Cristobal Brew-Ski

Prepare to fall in love with Lake City. Tucked in the San Juan Mountains, it’s close to five fourteeners, three National Forests, one BLM district, four wilderness areas, and two wilderness study areas. When we say you can get away from it all in Lake City, we mean it.
