Winter Activities


Plan a winter adventure: jump on your snowmobile, do some ice fishing or enjoy cross country skiing at The Wilderness at Fortune Bay!

When summer turns to winter and the lake freezes over, there’s still plenty to do! From snowmobiling to ice fishing to cross-country skiing, adventure awaits right outside the door!

Snowmobiling – Thanks to the volunteer efforts of the Vermilion Penguin Snowmobile Club and other area snowmobile clubs, we have endless miles of well-groomed snowmobile trails right out our front doors! Whether you are bringing your family or your entire group, we have some great room packages!

Cross Country Skiing – Our complimentary ski trails offer incredible views of The Wilderness at Fortune Bay! We have multiple groomed trails with different levels of difficulty (view map).

Ice Fishing – Fortune Bay Resort Casino is now renting ice fishing houses! Each rental includes bait, heat, and lights—all you have to do is drive to the house and start fishing! For complete details, see the copy below or call our Marina Manager Byron Greenwaldt at 218-410-3955. You can also click here Rentals Available!

Snowshoeing – Hike along a trail or blaze your own path across frozen Lake Vermilion. We offer complimentary snowshoes to our guests. First come, first serve. Call 800-555-1714 to reserve your pair today.
