Scroll below for additional info on the happenings.... 

 

Saturday, September 2 at 6:45am: Bring on the Weekend! The rain has moved out and susnhine is on tap for this wonderful Saturday with temps in the 70's.  Adventure Park opens at 10am today with the chairlift turning at 11am.  The only question of the morning is regarding the Bike Park.  We did receive rain overnight/early morning and our crews will be out evaluating the trails her soon  We are quite confident that the Bike Park will open today, but we might need to have a bit of a delayed opening in order to allow for a little exytra dry time & proper trail maintenance.  Stay tuned, we will see you on the hill soon! 

Thursday, 31 August at 12pm -- It's an absolutely gorgeous day of sunshine and 60's here in Duluth, and we're stoked for some serious GOOD TIMES here today at our Adventure Park, Bike Park, Scenic Chairlift Rides and more!  Don't forget to swing down by the Riverside for yummy eats and tasty drinks.  Enjoy the day, and Friday looks super sweet as well with lots of sun & 70s!  We're watching those forecasts closely as those chances of wet on Saturday have been jumping all over the place--kind of looks to us that the "Mother" Lake may help keep this system away from our hill (or at least make any impacts very slight) and most feel we will have cooperating weather conditions throughout the entire holiday weekend....we certainly like the sound of that, eh!!

Previous Update -- The end of August is upon us which means a few things; 1 - this is the last week of "summer season" hours (fall hours start next week) ... 2 - we welcome some of the absolute best downhill mountain bike conditions of the entire season (the Adventure Park is always awesome, yet starting NOW through mid-October is typically our best trail conditions of the entire year!) ... 3 - the official summer-ending holiday with extended FUN opportunities is quickly approaching! The recent weather here in Duluth has us thinking a bit about fall...but looks like this week/weekend ahead we see temps rebound back into the 70s and quite a bit of sunshine!  So, here's to finishing out this amazing summer in style, Duluth-Style with GOOD TIMES here at Spirit Mountain...enjoy!!  

To help keep you in the loop and up-to-date on our happenings for the week ahead; find a quick run down of our operating schedule through the Labor Day Weekend:
