The annual Pincushion Mountain Winter Festival takes place two miles north of Grand Marais on the Gunflint Trail.  At this event, you'll get cross-country skiers of all experience levels and spectators too.

There are skiing events throughout the day for beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced skiers in classical, freestyle, and skijoring.  These events range from .5k to 30k.  It's a family event too, so everything is open to both adults and children.

It's on Saturday, February 15th, and runs from 8:00AM-5:00PM with the first event, the 30km classic ski race kicking off at 10:00AM.  You can register online for any of the races up until Noon on Friday, the 14th.  Otherwise you can register in person the day of the event at the Pincushion Chalet starting at 8:00AM.  For more information on all of the races and what is planned for the day, check it out here.
