Should Mother Nature cooperate with copious amounts of snow, guests can go cross-country skiing on groomed trails that traverse the River Wildlife property (and connect to a portion of Blackwolf Run’s land); they can go snowshoeing; and there’s even a sledding hill, which golfers might recognize as the 10th fairway of Blackwolf Run’s original course. Regardless of how much snow is on the ground, guests also have the ability to take hikes on any of the trails surrounding River Wildlife, they can go fat-tire biking, enjoy carriage rides, or simply visit the property for live music on Friday night or come on Saturdays when a DJ spins some tunes.
And don’t forget the fun snacks and beverages, too. Inside a warming hut, guests will find a popcorn bar and a hot cocoa bar, and they’ll be able to order mugs of mulled wine and winter-themed cocktails. Cranberry Mimosas are always popular, but guests will definitely want to try the Sweater Weather—a hot cider cocktail crafted with local maple syrup and Wisconsin-made bourbon. With a drink in hand, guests can then adjourn to the nearby patio outfitted with Adirondack chairs and Solo Stoves, which makes it an ideal space for s’mores-making. As Check explains, it’s all about bringing an “apres-ski feel” to Kohler.
“We’re building out Blackwolf Run to be a great location all year-round for guests, and over the past three years guests have really loved these winter activities,” she says. “With the name Frozen Fairways we can tie it back to golf and to what people know us for, but it’s really exciting for us to show off the resort and these winter activities that allow guests to enjoy the resort year-round.”
