Happy Father's Day!

June 18, 2017 ll Father's Day, 8:30 a.m.

We extend a warm Father's Day greeting to all the dads out there.  May you have a day of fun, relaxation, and appreciation for all you do. If your family is looking for a great way to help you enjoy your special day, have them bring you to Spirit Mountain!  Our Alpine Coaster, Zip Line, Jumping Pillow, Mini Golf, Disc Golf, Scenic Chairlift and Bike Park are all scheduled to open at 11am this morning.  Our Riverside Bar and Grill will also be open for some tasty eats and treats at 11am.  Stop in for a burger, salad, soft drink, Icee, ice cream or an adult beverage - we have something for everyone at the Riverside.  

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.  

Whether you're spending the day in Duluth or traveling to points elsewhere, Spirit Mountain is a great place to enjoy your Sunday!  

 

 


Grandma's Weekend

June 16, 2017 ll Friday Night Update, 9:20 pm.  It was a beautiful day at the hill today!  The heat came on a bit in the afternoon, but was fairly well tempered by a steady breeze.  Thank You to all our guests who were able to make it out to enjoy some fun and sun.  

Well, it's Grandma's Eve in Duluth.  We wish all the best to the many athletes, their friends and families, and everyone associated with the events that help define Grandma's Weekend.  

It's probably safe to say that around 99% of the people in our area are closely following the weather this weekend.  We are right there in the mix, with more than one eye on the sky. Looking at the various models it's a blend of will it or won't it, and of course, the when portion of will it or won't it...."it" being precipitate.  One of the favorable trends we're seeing is that, although the percentage of chance for rain fluctuates tomorrow through Sunday, the daily totals for potential precipitation are declining.  Sometimes the Big Lake has a way of parting the clouds when the west wind blows, and we're hoping this weekend is one of those times.  We're encouraged and optimistic, because until the moisture hits the ground...it's still just a forecast.  

Our plan is to roll out as usual tomorrow morning, which means our Adventure Park, Scenic Chairlift and Bike Park all open at 11am.  Our Riverside Bar and Grill opens at 11am as well, just in time for a cold beverage and some lunch.  Try a burger or salad, paired with one of the local brews you'll find on tap, and it's a solid match.  

Whether you visit Spirit Mountain to ride the trails or Alpine Coaster, play your favorite version of golf, participate in one of our other activities, or just want to check us out - we're glad to have you, and we look forward to helping you enjoy your weekend.  Check out our specials listed below, and we'll see you at Spirit.
