lide through silent forests on fresh, deep powder. Listen to the calls of birds and other animals in this unspoiled wilderness playground. Breathe deep the clean, crisp air. Travel for hours without seeing another human being or hearing any motors or machines, out of the reach of cell phones and fax machines. This is the beauty of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA).

Or, try out the many nearby groomed trails to practice your technique and improve your skills. In either case, this area is wonderful for cross-country skiing, with terrain and conditions that are ideal for any skill level and up to any challenge.

Smitty’s On Snowbank is an official access point to the BWCA and situated less than five miles from the Canadian border. Come spend a restful night in our modern accommodations. Eat a hearty breakfast from our friendly kitchen early in the morning and start your explorations right from our front door.

Travel permits are required for entry into the BWCA but reservations are not necessary from October 1 to May 1. 

Don’t hesitate to give us a call to check on snow conditions!

Call today for availability and reservations!
