The Driftless Area in Mississippi Valley: The Driftless Area around Ferryville in Wisconsin is famous the world over because it is completely surrounded by unglaciated territory. It preserves a large sample of what the rest of Wisconsin, as well as northern and eastern United States, were like before the Glacial Period.

Birding and Mississippi Rivier Flyway: The Mississippi River Valley is one of North America's greatest environmental resources and is a major bird migration corridor. Due to the river’s north-to-south orientation and diverse variety of ecosystems millions of migratory birds use this corridor each year during fall and spring migration. Pelicans, diving ducks, and swans use the river's large open-water pools. Geese, herons, egrets, resident and migrant songbirds use the shallow backwater wetlands. Bottomland forests support migrating and nesting populations of songbirds, bald eagles, ospreys, mallards, and wood ducks. Many more species use the region as their year-round home.



Fishing and Downhill Skiing: The Upper Mississippi River has everything you need to make your fishing trip a success. Walleyes, bass, pike, catfish, bluegill, crappie, you name it! Local Guides available.

Since 1959, skiers of all ages and abilities have fallen in love with Mt. La Crosse! From gentle Mileaway, Wisconsin's longest run, to Damnation!, Mid-America's steepest trail, Mt. La Crosse offers the widest variety of skiing and snowboarding terrain in the Midwest.
The unique chalet offers food service, a complete ski shop, rental and repair shop, and an award- winning bar, all close to the slopes and handy to parking.

Mt. La Crosse's eighteen slopes and trails are serviced by three double chairlifts and one rope tow.Mt. La Crosse is open seven days a week until 9:00 p.m. (Special hours apply on holidays)
