Winters are cold, often frigid in the north of the state, with adequate snow for skiing, skating, snowmobiling, ice fishing and sledding. Summers are warm, and are conducive to summer sports, including swimming, fishing, camping and hiking. Minnesota only rarely experiences heat waves or drought.
Warm winter clothes are needed in the coldest months. Light- to mediumweights are advised for the summer.
