If you’re visiting the Midwest Mountaineering Outdoor Adventure Expo in Minneapolis this weekend, stop by the Bearskin booth and say hi to Quinn, Kate, our musher Erik Simula and one of his friendly sled dogs.
Grab a Bearskin brochure –there’s a $50 off coupon secretly tucked in there, good on a new reservation of 3 days or more that can be used by anyone. Usually we have a coupon like this available for new guests who have never visited Bearskin before, but the Expo coupon will work for anyone. You can also enter a drawing to win a free stay at Bearskin.
Erik will be speaking about his amazing 1000 mile birch bark canoe journey at 12:45 Saturday at Cowles Auditorium. As anyone who has been on a dog sled trip with Erik knows, he is an articulate, interesting speaker. He has beautiful photos from his Arrowhead Journey, as well as many fascinating anecdotes about the trip. If you’re thinking of attending the Expo, make plans to time your visit so you can catch Erik’s talk.
Quinn will also be giving a presentation at the Expo on 12:30 on Sunday at the Humprey Center. He’s going to be talking about the Volks Ski Fest and encouraging people to come up to be part of the first ever Volks Ski relay. You don’t have to be a fast skier to join a relay team for Volks Ski. If you can stand up on skis and move forward in the snow, you are a potential relay team member! Quinn will also talk about the 400 K of great ski trails in the area.
The Outdoor Expo is free and is great weekend entertainment. Besides all the informative outdoor information at the Expo, there will be numerous food and beer concessions. Stop in to visit the “state fair of the outdoor community!”
