Based in the Wisconsin's northwoods, we are fortunate to have several trail options for our practices.  Practices location will be determined by the Coaches and based on snow conditions.

  • Minocqua Winter Park. MWP is our primary training location with >80K of professionally groomed skate and classic ski trails. 45.83018991282384, -89.89525101942228  
    • MWP is also a winter go-to for locals and visitors.  The park has a chalet, restaurant, ski shop, tubing, ice skating, and ski rentals.
    • Thanks to MWP for supporting LNST over the years!
