The Wausau Nordic Ski Club and the Marathon County Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department is hosting an open house at Nine Mile Forest. The event is open to the public and are encouraged to come and find out more about this fabulous facility. Fall is one of the best times to experience what Nine Mile has to offer and would love to share the experience with you.
Just a short drive from your door, Nine Mile County Forest Recreation Area is a jewel of year-round, outdoor recreation. Home to hunters, horseback riders, mountain bikers, cross country skiers, snowshoers, hikers, birders, and snowmobilers in a sustained timber unit.
This is a great opportunity to visit pristine Alpine-style chalet with fireplace, grand room, equipment rental space and a warm welcome. You can also explore the trails with members of the Wausau Nordic Ski Club on walking tours. There will also be information about our club activities including children’s and adults cross country ski lessons, ski trips, group ski outings, and many other club events throughout the ski season.
This is a free event! No registration is required. Just show up!
