Candlelight Ski 2023

Our 33rd Annual Candlelight Ski-Hike-Snowshoe is in the history books. As is the tradition, guests enjoyed traversing the Fern Trail loop, guided by candlelight through the forest and along the lakefront. Conditions were fairly icy this year, so most people chose to hike. A roaring fire and yummy hot chocolate waited for them at the end.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help set up the candles, helped with parking and greeting visitors, tended the fire, and supplied the hot chocolate. Very special thanks to the Door County Piggly Wiggly for donating almost 400 deli containers. They beautifully held the candles and will be able to reused for future events.

We’ll see you next year!
