New this winter is a tubing park complete with its own rope tow, which opens Dec. 26 for the holidays. The park will be open on weekends all winter long. The cost is $15 per person for a two-hour session.
The Ridge offers 35 slopes and two terrain parks. Giants Job, an intermediate terrain park features several rails, boxes, foot kickers, a quarter pipe and half pipe. Mini Shred, a beginner terrain park, includes smaller features, rails and kickers.
Winter enthusiasts love the craggy peaks, miles of endless forests and deep snowfall for skiing and riding that you find along the Gopher State's Iron Range. On a sunny day, from high atop the 550-foot ski hill, the view seems to stretch as far north as Hudson Bay.
Dress warmly, because the legendary cold that the Iron Range is famous for is no myth. These hardy residents take pride in their region's reputation as "America's Icebox."
