WELCOME  Welcome to North Dakota’s Four Seasons Playground! Bottineau is a thriving city known for its friendly people. In the city of Bottineau, you will find plenty of pleasant surprises. A 33 foot statue of Tommy Turtle, the area’s host, riding a 35 foot snowmobile will greet you. If you are in town in mid-June, you can attend North Dakota’s oldest county fair, the Bottineau County Fair. Comfortable accommodations and shopping are available for your convenience and enjoyment right here in Bottineau.  Venturing outside the city, you will see why the Bottineau area is known as the Four Seasons Playground. The Bottineau Country Club, located three miles northeast of the city on the Lake Road, offers great views and is neither severe nor a pushover for a skilled golfer.

 Lake Metigoshe, located 12 miles northeast of Bottineau, and straddling the United States/ Canada border, offers fishing, boating, skiing, hiking, biking, camping, picnicking, sight seeing, fine dining, lodging and more. If you enjoy camping and picnicking, Lake Metigoshe State Park can satisfy all your needs.  Other sights just north of Bottineau in the Turtle Mountains include Mystical Horizons, Scenic Byway 43 and Bottineau Winter Park/ Annie’s House for year-round fun.  Snowmobile trail heads start from Bottineau and access the Turtle Mountains. The trails run across the whole Turtle Mountain area with many miles of groomed trails. And if you’re a hunter, we have plenty of that too, from grouse hunting to goose and duck hunting and plenty of deer and other small game animals.

However, the club put on its first show in July of 1958 and since that time has performed ski shows every summer.  Club de Skinautique performs four to five

full ski shows each season. Their traditional July 3rd show provides a reason for many families to gather at Lake Metigoshe to see the show and then enjoy the fireworks display at dusk. They also put on a second show in August, which is the skiers’ favorite show because they get a chance to present the acts they’ve been working on all summer.  The club enjoys traveling and performs two to three shows a year from Canada to South Dakota. In addition, the Skinautiques accepts requests to put on skiing demonstrations and mini shows for special functions at Lake Metigoshe. Check the website for updates: www. clubdeskinautique.com.

TURTLE MOUNTAIN SCENIC BYWAY

MYSTICAL HORIZONS

 The Turtle Mountain Scenic Byway in North Dakota begins 3 miles north of Rolla on County Hwy. 43, then goes through St. John to State Highway 14 northwest of Bottineau.  Highway 43 is one of the most picturesque areas in the state. The 53-mile stretch first ascends through the calm, serene beauty of the Turtle Mountains and then descends into the foothills, offering a spectacular view of the prairie. Many of the state’s major tourism sites are located along the highway, including Lions Park at Lake Upsilon, International Peace Garden and Lake Metigoshe State Park, as well as many other museums, parks and sites.  The “Scenic Byway” is denoted in the official North Dakota Highway Map and on the Turtle Mountain Area Map on Pages 12 and 13.

 Mystical Horizons is located on the western edge of the Byway near Carbury. The stone structure is a scaled-down, 21st-century version of Stonehenge.  Site-goers can stand on one of the brass pieces while observing the summer and winter solstices (June 21 or 22 and December 21 or 22, respectively) and the fall equinox (September 21 or 22,) all the while with the sun shining directly towards them.  A sundial is also located at the site. Here, visitors can view the position of the sun’s shadow to tell the correct time of the day during Daylight Savings Time from spring through fall. Another feature is the North Star Polaris Sighting Tube, in which individuals can view Polaris, the North Star.

BOTTINEAU WINTER PARK  Bottineau Winter Park is located along the northern border of North Dakota in the Turtle Mountains and offers many winter recreational activities such as downhill skiing and snowboarding, tubing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Discover this winter why this family-friendly winter resort located just 10 minutes from Bottineau has been dubbed “The Jewel Above the Prairie.”  The Bottineau Winter Park has been North Dakota’s prime downhill ski, snowboarding and tubing area for 47 years. Eight open slopes offer a good variety of challenging runs. All slopes plus the terrain park are accessible from the unloading area of the triple chair lift. Two new carpet (conveyor) lifts service the two beginner hills, allowing easy to use transportation back to the top. One T-bar and high speed rope tow is also available on busy days to transport any level of

skier to the top of one of the eight runs. BWP season typically runs from Thanksgiving to the end of March. Please check our hours of operations and conditions at www.skibwp.com.  Annie’s House visitor center is a year-round facility that provides comfortable seating, warm food and free Wi-Fi. This state-of-theart facility is 11,500 sq. ft., and has a Rental Shop, ski patrol, kitchen and bathrooms.  We’re in the beautiful Turtle Mountains, with the 8 runs carved out of the wooded hills and valleys. Runs for everyone - whether you’re a beginner, an expert, or somewhere in-between. And the trees were left along the edges to shelter you from those wintry winds. Winter is a beautiful season. Come to Bottineau Winter Park and make the most of it!  For more information on the park go to our website at www.skibwp.com or Facebook at Bottineau Winter Park.

LAKE METIGOSHE AND PEACE GARDEN

SNOWMOBILING  With spectacular scenery, deep snow and hundreds of miles of trails, the Turtle Mountains are a paradise for snowmobilers.  All the grandeur of the winter season can be viewed along countless miles of snowmobile trails within the area. Many of the wooded trails are groomed daily, adding comfort to the natural beauty of the vicinity. Witness the splendor of nature while sliding across the crispy snow. Heavy snowfalls in early winter usually ensure long seasons for the snowmobiler as well as the downhill or cross country skier. Winter usually hits the Turtle Mountains two to three weeks earlier and lasts two to three weeks longer because of the high altitude.  There are approximately 400 miles of groomed trails, mostly in the Lake Metigoshe and Provincial Park area that are groomed regularly throughout the snow season. One

of the newer trails leads all the way from Bottineau to the Peace Garden and promises to be a very scenic journey. Trail heads are located at the Quilt Inn, Bottineau Winter Park, Max Lake, and north of Adams Lake on Highway 10 to Boissevain, Manitoba.  If you’d like an introduction to the Turtle Mountains’ snowmobiling world, contact the Bottineau County Family Snowmobilers. The family oriented club offers organized trail rides for snowmobile enthusiasts. The club sponsors several trail rides throughout the winter season. Club members welcome the chance to inform visitors of snowmobile opportunities around the Turtle Mountain area. They can be contacted for organized trail rides, repair information, where to go, or any other snowmobile information. Call the Bottineau Area Chamber at 701-228-3849 for contact information.
