Swedetown Trails

With plenty of snow and great trail grooming the Swedetown Trails are some of the best in the Midwest for skiing all winter long. There are more than 30 km of trails for every level of skier, and 5 km of lighted trails!

Clicking on the map takes you to swedetowntrails.org, where you will find a larger version.

The Keweenaw averages more than 200 inches of snow every year and Calumet is one of the areas that gets dumped on the most. Ski season opens early and runs through mid-to-late March every year. The latest trail conditions can be found at keweenawtrails.org.

The Swedetown Trails Club and Calumet Township maintain a chalet at the Swedetown Trailhead on Osceola Road. There are restrooms, a water-bottle filling fountain and a wax bench. Open daily until 8 p.m.

The Swedetown Trails are well-groomed by a 2015 Prinoth Husky with power tilling and/or compactor bar, as conditions dictate. The groomer makes multiple passes through all trails for maximum trail width. Each year the trails are maintained well throughout the season, but special work and care goes into the trails to keep them in top shape for the Great Bear Chase. With dozens of years of experience  we think our group of groomers is amongst the best in the businesses, thanks to all of you for your work!
