Monday - 3 October, 9:30am:

Thanks to everyone for coming out to enjoy this past weekend!  It truly was one of those EPIC fall weekends in Duluth....sweet sunshine---temps in the 60s----beautiful fall colors, especially from the scenic chairlift----prime mountain bike trail conditions----and what crazy-fun at the Adventure Park, campground, disc golf course, hiking trails, Riverside Bar & Grill and more!  The good news here is that this coming weekend looks pretty sweet, too! 

Until then, here are a few reminders to note:

--This is the last weekend of the season for our Campground...there are some spots open, should you wish to get in that final outing at the best campground in the region...yeah, we are a bit biased, but who else has such close access to the Adventure Park, a Scenic Chairlift, Hiking Trails, Biking Trails and so much more!!

--Our Chairlift and Bike Park is slated to be open through Sunday, October 9th....however, there is a chance we could see some BONUS DAYS on the 15th & 16th of October, weather permitting.  Stay's been a solid mountain bike season, and we wish to thank everyone for coming out to enjoy, plus a huge WELL DONE to our Bike Park Crew for the solid efforts all season long....winter fat biking is next once the snow-pack is in place!

--The Duluth Traverse section which comes into our base area at the Grand Chalet, is slated to open by end of this week!  We are very excited about this as it will truly provide some amazing connectivity to the COGGS' trail system here in Duluth to a level unsurpassed by no other city in the USA!  Thanks to COGGS, the City of Duluth, Rock Solid Trail Contracting and the many others that have played a part in making this a reality!!

--Our Adventure Park will continue rolling along with our Friday thru Sunday schedule with an anticipated closing date of October 23.  Things could change depending upon how the weather unfolds, but our plans at this time are to roll through the 23rd with our AP operations.

--Our Disc Golf course will remain open so long as weather and conditions allow.  We have not yet set a date for pulling pins, and we'll certainly keep everyone in the loop as time moves forth.

--Looking ahead slightly to our 3rd Annual Fall ThrowDown (pre-season rail jam) on Saturday, October 29.  As part of the Team Duluth Annual Ski & Snowboard Swap Sale Weekend (Oct 28-30), this is somewhat of our "official" winter kick-off and a great time to get some sweet deals on gear or just enjoy the festivities!  More details coming soon...

--Employment Opportunities - YES, we will be hiring for full-time and part-time positions for the winter season!  Come join our TEAM to receive some sweet perks and help us provide the ultimate winter recreation experience for hundreds of thousands of guests this coming season....CLICK HERE for details.  Job Fair Dates:  Saturday, October 29 and Tuesday, November 1

It's a great time of year to DO-DULUTH!  The weather is going to cool down a bit here as we roll through this week, but still looking at primarily temps in the 50s and quite a bit of sunshine as we head towards the weekend.  Grab the family and/or the crew...see you in the Northland!

Sunday, 2 October at 9:30am

Sunday - 2 October at 9:30am - What an amazing Saturday we had here on the hill...thanks to everyone for coming out to enjoy.  It was nearly a perfect fall day with lots of sunshine, cool temps and beautiful colors....expect much more of the same here on Sunday!

Hours for Sunday are 11am-6pm for all operations---Adventure Park, Bike Park and Riverside Bar & Grill.

The mountain bike trails are in PRIME condition, so you can certainly expect an EPIC day of riding here on Sunday.  Our scenic chairlift rides will provide some of the most awesome views of the fall colors and the city-scape, so make sure to at least get a lap in on the lift here today.  Please visit our BIKE TRAIL REPORT for additional information and insights.

The always-a-thrill alpine coaster is the fastest ride in the town, and provides great views & good times every time.  Take a ride on the zipline...get some jumps in on the pillow....and/or, how about a few rounds of mini-golf....all is awaiting at our Adventure Park!

Our 16 Hole disc golf course has some of the most diverse, unique holes in the entire region...and it is most definitely going to be quite an enjoyable day for a round of dg here on the hill!

Don't forget about swinging by the Grand Avenue Chalet before, during and/or after your activities....the Riverside Bar & Grill will be serving up yummy eats & drinks all day long here as well.

As stated yesterday, it's a great weekend to DO DULUTH....get outside and enjoy!

Friday- September 30 at 6am

Friday- September 30 at 6am:  Happy Friday!  We're gearing up for an amazing weekend here at Spirit Mountain....looking at nearly perfect fall-like weather with lots of sunshine, temps in the 60s and many beautiful "colors" here around the region!

Our Bike Park and Adventure Park roll today 3pm-7pm.

The mountain bike trails are in absolutely PRIME condition due to the "buffing" efforts from the park crew this week, as well as the ideal moisture level for a firm, yet tacky surface....."hero" riding, as some might say...expect these conditions all weekend long!  All trails are open, and should be a wonderful evening for a Scenic Chairlift ride as well.  Friday is our finale for the "Get Bent" Downhill Race Series (thanks again to our friends at Bent Paddle Brewing Company and Continental Ski & Bike)..race at 6pm....and everyone come on out to the Grand Avenue Chalet for live music beginning at 6:30pm with Russ Sackett in our Riverside Bar and Grill.  

It is also Family Fun Friday at the Adventure Park w/$19 unlimited tickets via our special do-it-all wristbands!  Should be a superb session to hit the region's only alpine coaster, ride the zipline, get some air on the jumping pillow, putt a round or two of mini-golf and enjoy the best chairlift ride in the city!

Don't forget that special pricing on season passes rolls through October 4, 2016.  Just added....purchase your 2017 Mountain Bike Pass and add on Winter Fat Biking for $99!  

Please read previous posts for additional information on events, activities and specials, and as most are aware, it's....Good Times, Every Time here in Duluth!!
