Winter Outdoor Activities in Chippewa Falls

Winter Activities

The holidays have come and gone, and the cold weather continues to descend upon us here in Chippewa Falls.  We all know the winter months in the north woods can be brutally cold some years.  While I don’t particularly enjoy spending a whole lot of time outdoors when it is cold,  there are definite benefits of getting outdoors and getting some exercise.  You always feel better after spending some time in the fresh air.  Whether it’s just a 15-minute walk in your neighborhood or grabbing the snowshoes and going for a walk on the Chippewa River or through Lake Wissota State Park, you’ll never feel as if you have wasted your time – especially when you can return to the warm, cozy bed and breakfast.

All the latest from Inn on Lake Wissota

 

Winter at the Inn

Welcome, 2022! The Holidays are over, and we are now settling in to enjoy the peacefulness of winter here on Lake Wissota. The lake has frozen over, and a few brave souls have taken to the ice to try their hands at catching the wide variety of fish found in our lake. I’m still waiting to see if it turns into a scene from “Grumpy Old Men”! Regardless of whether you prefer ice fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, shopping, or just snuggling up next to the fireplace with a good book, we would love to welcome you as our guest at the Inn on Lake Wissota.

Key Lime Pie – Your New Favorite Summer Dessert

Nope, this isn’t a breakfast recipe, but it does embody the the Inn and what it stands for more than we’d like to admit. We believe dessert is best shared with friends (as long as you get plenty), and they should leave you with sweet sugary dreams once it’s gone. Prep this pie the day before and when everyone’s gathered you’ll look like Harry Houdini with surprise dessert! 

This recipe comes from Sobo, a restaurant surrounded by beaches in Tofino, Canada. Feel free to close your eyes and picture yourself eating this on a beach in the sun. We promise, it’ll make it even better.

5 reasons to hold your team-building event in Chippewa Falls

Chippewa Falls, geographically speaking, is very blessed to sit on the banks of the Chippewa River.  The river has lent itself to a rich and varied history for the city.  The city was built amidst the logging industry followed by shoe factories, a woolen mill company, banking, supercomputing, and we can’t forget to mention a world-renowned brewery!  All of these businesses required teamwork and helped create a vibrant community that has stood the test of time.  Natural resources abound as well.  All of these elements come together to help you develop a team-building event your group will never forget.  A team-building retreat in Chippewa Falls will help your teammates connect, develop new ways to communicate which helps foster creativity and productivity.

A Winter Walk through Irvine Park

This January has brought a wide variety of temperatures and not a lot of snow in the Chippewa Valley.  We took an opportunity one Sunday afternoon that offered somewhat balmy temperatures (for January, that is) to take a winter walk through Irvine Park in downtown Chippewa Falls.  A chance to get outdoors and spend time with friends could not be passed up on this particular day.  The weather had warmed to near freezing after several days of sub-zero temps, so we were all anxious to get out and about.  As transplants to the area just a few years ago, Roger & I still have plenty of exploring to do in the Chippewa Valley in order for us to get to know the area.  We were somewhat surprised when our friends suggested a winter walk in the park.  We have visited Irvine Park during the holiday season as it is lit up with over 100,000 lights and Christmas scenes displayed throughout the park.  It has turned out to be an annual holiday tradition for our family, as it is for many families in the Chippewa Valley.  Yet, we had never considered truly exploring the park after the Christmas Village closes for the season.
