You may think you have to go out west to find alpine skiing and snowboarding, but there are opportunities to take to the slopes right in the Superior National Forest.  There are two alpine ski areas operating within the proclamation boundaries of the Superior National Forest.  They are on private land and operate independently of the National Forest.  For your convenience, we have provided links to the websites maintained by these ski areas.  Think snow, and happy skiing!
