Hit the Water Parks, Seriously!

Zip Line Above the Snow-Covered Trees
The winter season is cold up here in Wisconsin Dells, but the snow brings plenty of fun with it. Take a look at the scenery from up in the trees tops with zip lining. This exciting outdoor sport is even more enjoyable during the winter as the winter landscape is picturesque. Local zip lining companies, including Bigfoot Zipline and Vertical Illusions, let you zip over winter tundra, canyon landscapes, and even Chimney Rock Park. Make sure to dress for the occasion and don’t forget your camera/phone!
Hit Up Cascade Mountain
It would not be winter up here in Wisconsin Dells without a quick visit over to Cascade Mountain. This nearby mountain features an abundance of skiing and snowboarding trails for you to enjoy. Of the 36 trails, you can find slopes of all experience levels with some trails being a mile in length. 10 ski lifts can be found around the mountain that will easily take you up to the top for another run down. Once you feel comfortable on the slopes, visit one of our different terrain parks. If skiing or snowboarding is too much of high-speed thrill for you, stop by Snow Tube Park on the mountain for 800-foot-long chutes perfect for snow tubing. Best of all, Cascade Mountain lets you save money by having all children 12 and younger ski for free when accompanied by an adult. Now that is some fun and savings!
