The Northwoods of Wisconsin in February is typically a beautiful season of snow-blanketed trees and trails. Flights are often delayed in the winter due to winter storms and roads may be snowy and icy. Please consider these factors as you plan your transportation.

This beautiful season provides many outdoor recreation opportunities, including cross country skiing and snowshoeing. You may bring your own equipment or HoneyRock equipment will be available throughout the conference for use on their extensive trail system. We recommend bringing warm layers for your stay at HoneyRock, including warm, sturdy boots as there will be snow and ice.
