Happy winter trails at vineyard


Or, you could give Bent River Outfitters a call.

Chankaska has teamed up with Bent River to offer snowshoeing adventures for groups. They’re offering packages for daytime and moonlight snowshoe outings. Some packages include wine tastings, others include wood-fired pizza. All packages include transportation.

The trails, so far, have been a hit with those who have used them.

“Kasota has the best winter skies and sunsets,” said Melissa Windom, who has used the trails for both cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

“I like the appeal that you can bring a bottle of wine,” added Zach Brooks.

Down the road, Kelling said he’s hoping to get a little more ambitious with what they can do with the trails. He’s hoping they can add more trails, and says the 220 acres they have to work with can accommodate it.
