The Small Town In Minnesota That Comes Alive During The Winter Season

Trent Jonas came to Minnesota to attend college - and never left. He's a Twin Cities-based writer with a BA in English and a MFA in creative writing, a Minnesota Master Naturalist, and the proud father of two adult children. With more than a decade of freelance writing experience under his belt, Trent is often out exploring his favorite topics: Minnesota's woods, lakes, and trails. Rhubarb pie is his weakness, so discovering new diners is also a passion.
As a gateway community for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), folks flock to the small town of Ely year-round, but the town truly comes alive during the colder months, making it a premier winter destination in Minnesota.
When you live in Minnesota, winter’s a part of life, and a visit to Ely will help you appreciate just how wonderful the season can be. While you’re in the area, be sure to visit the Bavarian-themed town of Biwabik, which is less than an hour from Ely and home to Giant’s Ridge Ski Resort.
