Chilly Dogs – Sled Dog Trips

Saturday, January 6th, 2018

My younger brother and his girlfriend recently visited Duluth to ring in the new year of 2018. Not only did they want to enjoy the sites and happenings of Duluth for a few days in the sub zero temps, but they decided to start their new year’s day off with some dog sledding.

Mont du Lac Resort Tubing

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Most students in the Duluth area are familiar with Spirit Mountain. They have great skiing and snowboarding runs, tubing lanes, bike trails, cabins, etc. However, there is also another top notch, smaller scale, winter recreational area just 15 minutes south of Duluth in Superior, WI. Mont du Lac Resort is a “charming ski resort, naturally sculpted by glaciers, that lies nestled among an enchanting cedar forest with breathtaking views of the St. Louis River and Jay Cooke State Park”. My girlfriend, younger brother, his girlfriend, and I had a blast racing down the tubing lanes at the Mont du Lac Resort the other night. Check out the link above for their rates/hours and be sure to compare them to some of the other winter resorts (Giant’s Ridge, Lutsen, Spirit Mountain) around for the best deal!

Mardi Gras! 

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Had fun celebrating Fat Tuesday with a Mardi Gras party at the Newman house near campus. There was tons of free food, party favors, and a Polaroid photo booth. The Newman house is dedicated to providing a space for college students to worship and to volunteer their time and energy to help the community. While they are a Catholic group, they welcome students of all denominations and are very friendly to new visitors. I have only attended a few events and services but have always had a good time despite not coming from a very religious background. 

Fresh Coat of Snow

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

There’s a fresh coat of snow over campus today! As lovely as it’s been to have the warm weather, that’s also meant a lot of mud and slush. All this fluffy, white stuff however is just the stuff we need for skiing, snowman building, and angel making. In addition to all the fun activities, it sure makes the giant pines on campus look beautiful. Last time we had this good of a snow I built a 7ft tall snowman with some friends. Maybe this weekend we will go for 8ft!
