Winter Fun In Iola

Ski-jumping at Iola

The hearty Danes and Norwegians that settled Iola, WI knew how to bring fun into a cold Wisconsin Winter.   They created the ski-jumps at Iola’s Winter Park just for that reason.   In the cold of Winter they celebrate their carnival.

The Bowl at Winter Park has long been the site of many competitions including the Olympic styled Badger State Games.    A day filled with competition shows here in this image.   Nestled in the terminal moraine from the last Ice Age, this area is filled with scenic beauty of kames, eskers, and drumlins.  Winter Park is a bowl or kettle just perfectly shaped as a landing  area for ski-jumpers from all over.
