Checkpoint MN Scavenger Hunt Inspires Winter Travel
Release Date: Jan 21, 2014
Hundreds of winter travelers have taken part in the Checkpoint MN scavenger hunt, which launched Dec. 10 and runs through Feb. 7. Ten iconic winter destinations – including Lutsen Mountains, Sandstone Ice Park and the Midtown Greenway in Minneapolis – serve as checkpoints, where participants snap their photo with the Checkpoint MN sign to win prizes.
Three intrepid explorers visited all 10 checkpoints in close to 24 hours, and hundreds of others continue their quest to check all 10 off their list. Even one check-in earns the participant a prize, and everyone is entered for a chance to win the grand prize pack that includes a fat bike, down jacket and GPS unit.
