Update, 2pm, Thursday, January 5 - 100%!!!!
These past 48 hours have been pretty cold and pretty intense with the chill factors. It's always a challenging decision to suspend operations, but when we are in those consistent -20 to -40 chlll factors, we simply must be safety first for our guests and staff. We appreciate the understanding and the continued support.
The GOOD NEWS is that we are going to start seeing some temperature bumps and lessening chill factors starting Friday. It's still going to be quite cold Friday and Saturday, but not nearly as gnarly as these past couple of days. Please dress accordingly and stay safe. We will delay our start time on Friday due to the morning chill factors, and therefore operations will resume at 12noon and roll until 8pm. For those coming out for the WORLD'S LARGEST LESSON, please plan to arrive at the Skyline Chalet between 11am-11:30am so you can get through the rental process and be ready to roll for the 12pm Event!!
Please note that our snow-tubing hill will NOT be open on Friday, but will resume regular hours for Saturday (11a-7p) and Sunday (11a-6p).
The even BETTER NEWS is that we will be 100% open on Saturday! All slopes & parks will be rolling when we roll the lifts at 9am Saturday. The snowmakers have taken full advantage of the recent COLD, and our mountain crew will have all prepared & ready for all to enjoy. It's always a superb feeling to know that all trails are stocked, and just want to pass along a HUGE thank you to the crew for making it happen....it's never easy and always challenging, and this year was certainly no different....well done, snowmakers!
Along with the other remaining slopes, Spirit Park will be making it's inaugural debut on Saturday! Expect a pretty sweet medium jumpline over on rider's left of the park, and then we'll have a few other things to play on as well. The Park will get some more love next week when the big jump line comes into the mix and we start setting other featues & elements all throughout. Yes, you are welcome!
The Tow Park will be back rolling as well, and then we've added a new Progression Park feel over on Powder Monkey. You will also notice a nice little set over on Four Pipe near the "bonk rock" as many affectionately refer to it. The Park Crew has been busy, and pretty sure most will be stoked to enjoy the sets this weekend....and much more on tap as we move along!!
We will host our first Fat Bike Sunday this coming weekend, and who better to help us kick off the season than Salsa!! The crew has been out packing and shaping, and we anticipate having either 2 or 3 of our bike trails (Happy and/or Candy and Calculated Risk) as well as the integrated slopes of Timber Cruiser & Juggler Joe. Please note that skiers & riders have the right-of-way on the ski slopes, and bikers must yield accordingly. More updates soon on Fat Bike Operations: but we are stoked to put bikes on lifts here on Sunday, January 8th!!

Winter is definitely here in Duluth, folks....hope to see you on the hill very soon! Please note that on Saturday & Sunday, Gandy & Blue Ruin will be closed for racing from 8:30am-3:30pm daily. They will reopen to the public once the races have finished.
