Candlelight Ski Upcoming at Whitefish Dunes State Park

Whitefish Dunes State Park is gearing up for its annual Candlelight Ski on Saturday, January 30 from 6 – 9 pm.

Volunteers are needed to help set out and pick up candles, as well as to staff the shelter building refreshment table. Those cooks in the crowd are welcome to provide home baked goodness for building energy for the ski. Contact the park for more information on how you can help.

When conditions allow, nine miles of trails are groomed for classic diagonal stride skiing. Snowshoeing and hiking is available on the Black Trail and on the beach. The shelter building is available daily. Please call for updated trail conditions or visit the DNR website for current conditions on your favorite state park, forest or recreation area.

Whitefish Dunes State Park is located at 3275 Clark Lake Road (county WD), on the Lake Michigan shoreline south of Jacksonport. All programs are free to the public unless noted; a park vehicle sticker is required.
