Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Overview

Giant's Ridge Resort, located in Minnesota's Iron Range northwest of Duluth, is one of the Gopher State's biggest golf and ski resorts. Residents are proud of its reputation as "America's Icebox." The ski resort boasts a 1,792 foot summit elevation, as well as a 7,000 person uphill capacity. The 35 trails that soar off the rocky crest offer some of the best cruising runs around the Great Lakes. Giants Ridge has an intermediate and beginner terrain park as well as a Children's sledding area and sliding hill. The Giant was first developed as an Olympic training site with World Class cross country trails, and the trails are still maintained to Olympic quality standards.
