It’s the cold truth – winter is officially here. So we brought back our special MN Ice Daze weekend to help you celebrate life, family and outdoor, winter fun.
As seen on WCCO’s 2013 “Goin’ To The Lake,” news anchors Frank Vascellero and Chris Shaffer made a pit stop at Grand View Lodge and took in all the weekend had to offer. Click here to see last year’s Ice Daze and read below for what we’re offering again this year in 2014.
To kick off the 2014 Ice Daze weekend, we will be offering our weekly wine tastings featuring Oregon and Washington Wines. Enjoy this informal hour of vino education, plus receive a certificate to use in our restaurants for a glass of your favorite wine you tasted during the tasting.
If you want a unique night with the kids, check out our Dive-In Movie at the pool, which can be a blast no matter what your age. Float on your own innertube with your friends and family while watching a movie on the big screen. Complimentary Inner tubes, pizza and popcorn will be provided. But if you prefer to stay dry, swing by the Northwoods Pub for live music both Friday and Saturday evening.
Saturday morning, enjoy an endless Breakfast Buffet, before you venture out for several fun activities such as our Grand View Wellness Yoga, or Cross-Country Ski Clinic, Broomball, Dog Sled Rides and Pond Hockey. After noon bells, join us at our annual Guest-Only Fishing Derby. Our three-hour derby will give you a chance to catch some tales and land some big prizes.
Fishing holes will be drilled for you and your fishing poles, tackle and bait will also be provided, all at no cost to you. Refreshments and hot dogs will be complimentary, but beer will be an additional charge. Following the derby will be the Ice Daze Olympics, offering families and individuals competition in categories such as Ice Trike Racing, Chip It to Win It, Human Curling, a snow sculpture contest and more.
To top off the weekend is our annual KFAN’s Common Man’s Snowmobile Poker Run on Sunday morning. Five stops throughout the miles of perfectly groomed trails in the Brainerd Area and receive 5 poker cards to get the winning hand for several great prizes. If you don’t have a sled of your own, our friends at Boats ‘N Beyond Rentals have available rentals, plus all the gear at a special price for our guests. After the long journey, head indoors to warm up at Northwoods Pub and enjoy our annual Superbowl Party. Enjoy a Football Lover’s Buffet, trivia, specials, and fun. Plus you can watch the champions of the NFL season battle for the coveted title.
Our MN Ice Daze package is $140/night based on double occupancy. Add $50/additional adult or $10 per child per night for a weekend of fun, music and celebration. It’s Minnesota – time to embrace the season and discover, learn and share.
