Home > Winter Press Trip 2012

Wausau and the surrounding communities were very fortunate to be the host of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism Winter Wonderland Press Tour January 23–25, 2012. While there have been previous press tours of this nature, this is the first tour that focused solely on winter activities within Wisconsin.

Over the course of three days, 17 journalists, five media agency representatives and two representatives from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism joined staff from the Wausau/Central Wisconsin CVB and packed in as much fun and information as was humanly possible! From cross country skiing and snowshoeing at Nine Mile Forest Recreation Area, downhill skiing and snowboarding at Granite Peak Ski Area, exploring the Woodson Art Museum and downtown Wausau, dining at area restaurants, ice fishing local waters, hiking Rib Mountain State Park and the Dells of the Eau Claire Park, tubing at Sylvan Hill Park, touring the Yawkey House Museum, ice skating downtown Wausau, and enjoying the local breweries—we kept them busy from sun up to sunset! For more tour details download the complete itinerary.

Additionally, three journalists who were unable to make the trip have received press kits in order to write about the area as The BEST Place To Play In The Snow.

These journalists represent a wide variety of publications, including Midwest Living, Chicago Tribune, Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, HuffingtonPost.com, Ski Magazine, Gannett News Service, USA Today, Better Homes and Gardens, Milwaukee Magazine, Madison Magazine, Wisconsin Trails, Wisconsin Sportsman Magazine, Group Tour Magazine, Minnesota Parent, OnTheSnow.com, AAA Go Magazine, Miami Herald, Uptown Magazine, US Airways Magazine, Washingtonian and Crappie.com.

The following are published articles, blog posts and select mentions from social media detailing the area based upon their visit and/or research. Additional features will be added to this page as the journalists publish their materials throughout the year.
