Fun Facts

We love winter! The average high temperature in Grand Marais in January is 25°F and the average low temperature is 6°F and the average snowfall is 14 inches (Source: Even though the Gunflint Trail is technically part of Grand Marais, it’s far enough away from the Big Lake that it is usually colder and snowier.
