Minnesota's Iron Range wealth was once measured in the tons of iron ore it produced. Today, its wealth is measured in natural beauty and a pristine environment. Winter enthusiasts love its mother lode of craggy peaks, miles of endless forests, and deep snowfall for skiing. On a sunny day, from high atop the 550-foot ski hill, the view seems to stretch as far north as Hudson Bay.
Dress warmly when you visit Giants Ridge, because the legendary cold that the Iron Range is famous for is no myth. These hardy residents take pride in their region's reputation as "America's Icebox."
