About 35 people from around the area, including New York Mills, Menahga, Frazee, and the Twin Cities, showed up Saturday for the Talvijuhla ski and snowshoe outing held at the Sonnenberg farm north of town.

Skiers and snowshoers experienced nice weather as they worked their way along trails cut through the woods, leading to a lodge where they were treated to a salmon chowder lunch.
