Update: 9:00pm, Wednesday, January 4
Due to the extreme cold and dangerous chill factors, the slopes & lifts will be closed on Thursday, 1/5/17. Plans will be to resume operations on Friday, 1/6/17...stay tuned for details. The good news is that we will see some up-ticks in the temps and relief from the winds as we roll into the weekend plus we will have 100% of our terrain open! Stay safe....
We WELCOME 2017 and what a finish to 2016 we had at Spirit Mountain. A sincere thank you to everyone that joined us over the Holiday period, and certainly appreciate your patronage, support and the many compliments over the past week. Our staff was very excited to have you enjoy our many offerings, and I wish to shout out a HUGE thank you to all staff members for the quality efforts!!
Now, what's on the agenda next...
First, we have our first significant winter weather event going down here Monday/Tuesday...most predictions show anywhere from 3"-6"-12" could fall here in the northland, and we are stoked for it! As the saying goes around here; LET IT SNOW!
Following the snowfall, we have a serious system of cold air that is settling in. This arctic air should provide us with our final stretch of snowmaking to get our couple of remaining trails open as well as get our parks stocked accordingly for the builds! Some trails and areas may be off-limits here this week as we finish up the snowmaking efforts, but there will be plenty of terrain available, and, we anticipate having 100% of our terrain open by the weekend.
As for The Parks of Spirit:
The NEW Tow Park & High Speed Rope has certainly been a welcome addition to the hill. We appreciate the many kudos & compliments here with the initial set up AND we are so psyched for the many things to come with the Tow Park. We also appreciate your patience as we continue fine-tuning the rope tow, and please make sure to give yourself some space on that rope! We will be making some more snow in the tow park area here this week, but plans are to roll it as follows: Monday - Thursday 2pm-8pm, Friday at 12pm-8pm, Saturday 9am-8pm and Sunday 9am-6pm...times may change based on maintenance and demand, but this is our plan in moving forth.
Our plan is to do a reset on Powder Monkey here this week with some more progressive features and elements. This will be a great line for all to enjoy and hone their freestyle skills accordingly. Let us know what you think!
Spirit Park will start taking shape this week, and our goal is to have the main park open by the weekend as well. With this stated; please note that at times there will be certain trails and areas that are unavailable throughout the parks. Our focus must be snowmaking at this point in time, but we will certainly be bringing all together as quickly as possible to give you some of the absolute best park experiences & options in the midwest!
Fat Bike Operations: our plan is to roll our fat bike operations on Sunday! We will provide trail updates by mid-week but looks like we will be able to put bikes on lifts for Sunday, January 8th....plus, we have Salsa coming in for a Demo Day this Sunday as well!!
