July in Duluth

Sunday, 9 July at 1pm:  Coaster is Rolling until 6pm here on Sunday Funday!  Additional Adventure Park attractions will open as conditions allow and things dry out....enjoy the afternoon...sun is out - fun it ON!

Sunday, 9 July at 11:45am:  Bike Park, Chairlift & Grand Avenue operations CLOSED for Sunday.  Due the storms this morning and continued rainfall, the bike trails are simply too wet to ride...bummer.  Our Adventure Park is currently on a weather hold until approximately 12:30pm and we anticipate resuming alpine coaster and other attractions once the weather system moves through the area.  Stay tuned for additional updates as all unfolds.  The afternoon actually looks pretty nice, so enjoy your day in Duluth!

Sunday, 9 July at 10am:  Due to the recent weather system that has moved through, the Bike Park & Chairlift will have a postponed opening of 1pm today.  Adventure Park will open as planned at 11am. 

Sunday, 9 July at 8am - Sunday Funday is upon us.  All operations are open today with Good Times on tap.  Looks like we might see some on again off again rain here today.  We will keep a close eye on the weather and may experience some weather holds at times today.  If operation schedules change; we will update accordingly.  

 

Saturday, 8 July at 7am - The crazy weather from yesterday has left the area, and we are all set for a fantastic weekend here at Spirit Mountain!  All operations are a GO! Our Adventure Park opens at 10am today with the Bike Park opening at 11am.  Check out the Bike Trails Report HERE for updates and details regarding operations today. 

Come on out and enjoy a gorgeous day at the hill.  Whether you're riding the coaster or zipline, taking a spin down the bike trails, trying your hand at some dynamite disc golf or enjoying any of our other activities....it's all good here at Spirit Mountain.   

 

 

Friday, 7 July at 1pm- Update: Our Adventure Park is back rolling until 7pm tonight!  Due to the heavy & substantial rainfall in the earlier storm system, our Bike Park, Chairlift & Grand Avenue operations are suspended for today. We anticipate resuming bike & lift ops on Saturday.   

Friday, 7 July at 11:45am -  Update: Storm has moved in and we're on a temporary weather hold for some of our attractions, this does look very minimal and very short-lived.  Stay tuned, and we'll see how all unfolds. 

Friday, 7 July at 7:30am - A gorgeous morning here in Duluth, and we've got an awesome Friday & weekend ahead!  Our Adventure Park rolls at 11a with the Bike Park, Scenic Chairlift & Grand Avenue operations all rolling at 12p.  The weather looks great for the entire weekend so hopes are you can make it up to enjoy a little "Summer, Duluth-style" with your family and/or crew!  Whether hiking, biking, coaster-ing, lift riding, camping or just having a bite or beverage...stop by and see us here on the hill.

The only blip here today are some cells out to our northwest which may bring some chances of a blow-thru storm/shower....looks very minimal and very short-lived, and we don't anticipate much in the form of operational impacts.  Stay tuned, and we'll see how all unfolds. 

 

Thursday, 6 July @ 7:30am - Adventure Park rolls today from 11am-7pm, and looks like the weather should bring us quite a bit of sunshine with temps pushing into the upper 70s / lower 80s by the afternoon.  Unfortunately, due to the heavy rains overnight/early-morning, the bike trails are simply too saturated to ride on Thursday; therefore our Bike Park, Chairlift and Grand Avenue Chalet operations will be suspended for Thursday.  Stay tuned, looks like the weather will cooperate nicely from this point and we anticipate ALL operations to be rolling for our Friday operations and all weekend long....plus, we are certainly stoked to see the projected sunshine & those awesomely-comfortable-summer-Northland temps which begin Friday and continue for the extended foreseeable future!  Enjoy your Thursday at the Adventure Park, and we will keep you informed as all unfolds!  Please scroll below for additional details and links... 

Mountain Bikers - though bummed to miss these two most recent lift-served downhill biking sessions, everyone simply needs to understand the following:  expect trail conditions to be very, very, very good this weekend!  Following these recent rains the past couple of mornings, we expect prime trail conditions once all dries out a bit more which is expected as Thursday and Friday unfold.  Many of you already know such a thing, but just a reminder that "hero" riding is likely to be here in Duluth this weekend....boooyaah! 

 

Wednesday, 5 July @ 8:45am -- The GOOD NEWS - it is WRISTBAND WEDNESDAY at the Adventure Park today.  Receive a Buy One Wristband Get One FREE if you are here by 1pm, it's that easy!  Adventure Park open today 11am-7pm.  The NOT-SO-GOOD-NEWS - we received nearly an INCH of rainfall with the early-morning thunderstorms which will force us to keep our bike trails closed today due to the wet trail conditions...we will also not operate the lift today nor our Grand Avenue Chalet operations.  The EVEN-BETTER-NEWS - it's going to be a beautiful day with lots of sunshine and temps pushing into the 80's which means BIG TIME FUN on the coaster, zipline, jumping pillow & mini-golf.  Make your plans now for a sweet Wednesday in Duluth!

We want to thank everyone for coming out to enjoy the 4th of July weekend with us.  Appreciate the many compliments, and so happy to have you share your adventures here in Duluth.  The weather was nearly perfect with loads of sunshine and those cooler-than-yours Northland temps (expect more of the same this coming weekend as well with lots of sunshine and temps in the 70s & 80s!), the bike trails were very nice with tacky conditions Saturday and great riding all weekend long, the disc golf course officially has 18 Holes (the first in Duluth, might we add!) and manicured quite nicely for many to enjoy, and never a dull moment at the Adventure Park for those awesome family-friendly, thrill-seeking adventurers of all ages to experience!

We are in the process of assessing bike trails.  The guys are on the hill checking everything and they will have a trail status report for us shortly.  We had a brief shower yesterday evening, so the trails should be in great shape.  All Bike Park trails are open with the exception of Boss Hogg, the bottom 2/3 of Calculated Risk and the pro line in the Skills Park.
