Fun Facts

We love winter! The average high temperature in Grand Marais in January is 25°F and the average low temperature is 6°F and the average snowfall is 14 inches (Source: Even though the Gunflint Trail is technically part of Grand Marais, it’s far enough away from the Big Lake that it is usually colder and snowier. And yes, we are praying for more snow every day!
