Winter continues... but not for long! January and February can sometimes feel like the longest and most blah months. But if you embrace the outdoors you will find winter won't last long enough and those gray days you dread will be filled with a new sense of wonder and awe at the beauty around you.

If you are looking for more winter outdoor adventure in Galena here are some details about the nearby Nordic Center. Just an 11 minute drive from the Aspen House!

It is next to the Highlands Restaurant Complex & General Golf Course. (In the General Pro Shop) Activities available include:

  • Ice skating on the new ice rink located on the upper parking lot of the General golf course.

  • Exploring miles of snowshoeing trails

  • Sledding down the signature 10th hole of the General Golf course

You can rent:

  • Ice skates

  • Sleds

  • Snowshoes

  • Food and beverage will be available at the Clubhouse Grill

  • The Nordic Center will be open from 9am-4pm weather permitting

And there is more!

Eagle Ridge Resort hosts a Winter Carnival every year at the end of February and it's just a few minutes from the Aspen House as well!
