Tubing, skiing, skating and snowshoeing: A Glimmerglass winter wonderland


“He loves it,” Ryersee said. “I just toss him in the backpack and he hangs outs.”

Ice fishing is a popular sport on Glimmerglass Lake. Many people push a sled full of equipment out onto the lake and cut holes in the ice hoping to catch fish. There is so much interest in ice fishing that the park offers an ice fishing clinic.

The park has had ice skating as well. There was an artificial pond in the pavilion, however during the recent warm days the liner rose to the surface and ripped.

“Right now we don’t have ice skating,” Young said. “But we hope to offer it again, weather permitting.”

There are many activities to enjoy during the winter months, and Glimmerglass State Park offers a variety of things to do for those looking for an adventure.
