What's NEW for Summer

As we continue to prepare for our summer operations, we are very excited to annouce that not only are there many NEW things happening at Spirit, but also some incredible savings just for YOU!


Spirit Mountain is now officially a Duluth Traverse Trailhead!  Located at our Grand Ave Chalet, there is direct access to the Traverse. Our Chalet provides ample parking, easy access to the Trailhead, all the amenities of the Grand Ave Chalet (grill & bar, bike rentals/service, bike wash, first aid, restrooms/changing rooms, resting space) plus access to our Down Hill trails too.  We will be extending our Grand Ave Chalet hours, Scenic Chairlift Ride & Mountain Bike Park Operations to a 5 day schedule during our Peak Season.  This will give everyone more time on the trails an to enjoy the views from the lift too.
