VOLUNTEERS make the SISU Ski Fest run!

It takes almost 200 volunteers to make the SISU Ski Fest a WONDERFUL Event year after year! See the 2018 list at Volunteers.
Do you have the SISU to Volunteer for the 10th Annual?

Start at ABR Trails and "Finnish" in downtown Ironwood. Ski among Northwoods pines, up, down and around rocky outcroppings, along the Montreal River, through the Miners Memorial Heritage Park, and by the World's Tallest Native American Statue. Commemorative SISU souvenirs and locally crafted age group awards. Traditional "Yooper" fare and local entertainment. A big event with small town ambiance.

SISU Ski Fest, your gateway to the season!
