This is the last weekend to take advantage of Summer Hours here at Spirit Mountain. You can argue whether summer ends with Labor Day, the first day of school or the day the last tomato is picked, but you can’t argue about the best place to celebrate the still-warm days! Spirit Mountain can help you wave goodbye to summer in style! Come out to experience everything the hill has to offer and spend one more weekend celebrating with friends and family. Hop on your mountain bike and hit the cross-country or downhill trails. Grab a burger and a beverage at the Riverside Grill at the Grand Avenue Chalet. Or try your hand at Putt-Putt Golf, hit new heights on the Jumping Pillow, or whoosh through the leaves on the Timber Flyer zip ride or Timber Twister alpine coaster. The days are getting shorter and there is no time to waste. The weather is beautiful and it's going to be a great weekend here at Spirit Mountain. We hope to #SeeYouAtSpirit really soon.
