The Wisconsin Frozen Butt Hang is a moderate “pulk or toboggan towing” trip in deep snow country. We like to get out there and really put ourselves and our gear to the test! We’ve been lucky enough to have some of the coldest temperatures the Midwest has to offer and routinely have among the coldest of all winter hang events.
Where: This year we will be back in Pearson WI hiking in on the Ice Age Trail. We will arrange to have a parking area plowed for us at the trail head.
The Route: We will hike in 1 mile on the Ice Age Trail to our campsite. The location is closed to the public so we have the entire area including 2 lakes to ourselves. There could be stacked wood for us and we can also cut from the forest if need be. There are picnic tables (might be buried under the snow) and maybe even a grill grate. Be sure to bring snowshoes or skis. Good fishing opportunities for panfish, bass, pike, and trout.
This event has always been a celebration of the coldest weather we can hope for. This event is not recommended for beginners with little to no experience camping in the cold. That said, there are lots of other opportunities for beginners to dial in there gear before the hang. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for info on some beginner friendly trips i’m hosting here in WI before the FBH.
Caution: Camping in sub freezing temperatures can be Extremely Dangerous and IS NOT the best time to try new gear for the first time (ex. stoves, tarps, boots, sleep system, etc). It is always a good idea to familiarize yourself with new equipment before taking it to the field. If you have any questions regarding your current gear or clothing, we would be happy to help.
