Winter 2021-2022 Snowshoe Season:
We recently added our Full Moon Events for January and February 2022. Coming soon-our Snowga class schedule and guided tours. Go to our TicketSpice page to purchase our Full Moon Event tickets:
Come to Wild Hills Winery and enjoy a magical evening of snowshoeing along our twilight trail and enjoy a Ridge & Valley tour experience. Our Full Moon Weekends in 2022 are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights on January 14, 15, 16, and February 17, 18, 19. The trail opens at 5 pm and there are tickets for each time slot until 8:30 pm. The trail will be closed down at 9:30 each evening. Click on the blue ticket button above for more information.
We will have our Snowga class schedule posted very soon. Snowga is a great mixture of snowshoeing and yoga, led by Teri Richards and Catrina Wastlick. Our classes are approximately one and a half hours, starting with snowshoeing on beautiful nature trails followed by a standing portion of yoga (with poles) and then a meditative portion of snowshoeing in silence and finishing with a lying down flow of yoga moves (on yoga mats in the snow.) We are looking at having a regularly occurring class each week where you can purchase a series of classes or purchase a drop-in class. Those dates and times will be released soon. Click on the aqua button to be taken to ticket sales for Snowga.
We also do guided, group snowshoeing tours on various local trails. Included in your tour is snowshoe rental, instructions, guided assistance, various bits of local history, geology, ecology, followed by hot cocoa at the end of the trail. Expect 1-2 hours of snowshoeing over various terrain. You can specify your activity level at the time of booking and a suitable trail will be chosen for the group based upon current snow levels. We ask you to wear clothing appropriate for the weather conditions as you will be outside. Click on the red button for tour options.
Once we get back to spring and warmer weather, we will be posting our UTV tours. We have a very beautiful, 6 passenger Kawasaki Ranch edition UTV decked out in style. You will enjoy a covered roof and windshield that will protect you from the wind & elements while enjoying the fresh air as you gaze out the side windows. You will be entertained by your guide, Marty for well over an hour. During the summer, enjoy the full-sensory experience while watching for wildlife as Marty engages you with stories, tall tales, and the history of the area. We ask you to wear clothing appropriate for the weather conditions as you will be outside. We can custom design this tours to go to farms, cheese factories, wineries, and orchards as well. You will see our UTV used in many of our events coming up!
We just did a tour with Dave & Heather and here is Dave’s very gracious review:
We highly recommend Ridge and Valley Tours for a personable, unique and lasting experience of the Driftless Area. Marty and Teri are excellent hosts and oh so knowledgeable of this special area of Wisconsin and the United States.
We booked a Dairy Tour and were able to gain an inside look of any area goat farm that farms sustainably and supplies milk to a major craft cheese producer. It was a special touch that we were able to taste some of the delicious cheeses that resulted due to the hard work of these farmers. We obviously also had a day filled with postcard worthy views of the wonderful Driftless Area. Part of the fun of boking a tour with Ridge and Valley is that you experience the area via their large ATV – a great and stress free-way to see as much as possible! Marty is also a natural story teller and makes each and every bit of information that is shared both interesting and fun.
In closing, don’t hesitate to book a half day (or day) with these great people – you won’t regret it and in the end will leave the area will wonderful memories.
