Reviews for Spirit Mountain
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
After reviewing the hours, it was open on the 16th so I took the day off work and now it says it is closed after I took the day off. It is ridiculous that I wasted a day off to ski to be completely fooled by their inconsistency.... Full Review
Wish there were more advanced runs, but this is still the best ski place in MN/WI besides Lutsen. Runs are well maintained, lifts are fast and comfy (although only 2 are open during weekdays, but you still have access to all the runs) and prices are reasonable. ... Full Review
love this place! excellent place to learn, and for the intermediate skier you won't find a better place for the price and location.... Full Review
I love spirit, it's a great place to ski with a beautiful veiw of lake superior. They have hills for all the skill levels and abilities, great rentals and 2 chalets. Spirit mountain is the best!... Full Review
Me and my brothers started a new tradition 3 years ago and that was to go on a snowboard trip every year during the Christmas season. It is a good way to connect since we live 4 hours away from each other. We have been going to a new place every year so far, but last year we cam to Spirit mountain and we were VERY happy with the overall service throughout the entire staff. From the front desk to the tuning shop in the basement, everyone was friendly, considerate and welcoming. My brother even broke a ratchet strap on his board and they gave him a free one cuz he forgot his money at the hotel...totally awesome.
The hill was pretty good, it didn't have very much for experienced riders (other than the terrain park), and didn't have allot to offer as far as treed areas to ride but there were a few gems you could find in the woods. But the runs had some fun quirky stuff. Overall Spirit Mountain was a success for us. This year we are trying Lutsen, but will definitely be returning to Spirit.... Full Review
Don't get me wrong, This is a solid hill, compared to others in Minnesota one of the best, but there is no way this hill has 700' of vertical. I've skied Mont Du Lac, Chester, Buckhill, Lutsen and Indian Head, as well as out West. Compared to to the 300 footers, Spirit Mtn feels almost twice as big, compared to the 800 - 900 footers it feels about half as tall. We recently started using an app on our I phone that measures length of runs, vertical feet skied, speed etc and the app has confirmed what we've felt for years. Spirit's vertical drop is closer to 500'.... Full Review
Spirit Mountain is a great area, I have no complaints. They have something for everyone! Good cruisers, good blues, good blacks, good terrain park, good beginner area, just amazing! Best Terrain Park in the Midwest in my opinion, they also have an express chair which always helps your overall experience.... Full Review
Fun place to ski, but Mother Nature can really make it challenging. The high speed quad is very nice, it's the only one in the state. Good variety of runs for all abilities, just have to watch for ice.... Full Review
really cool. the terrain is awesome and so is the powder. however its too far from the twin cities. overall, its BEAST... Full Review
This was my first time skiing at spirit mountain and I won't be my last!! The hotel I stayed at gave us two days of 4 hour lift tickets. The first day we skied it was pretty windy and cold outside so we didn't stay long. The second day it was perfect weather. The hills were freshly groomed and fresh snow. All the runs were pretty long and were fun to go down. It wasn't overcrowded which was also nice and they wasn't too many inexperienced skiers bombing the hill. Lift ticket prices are reasonable and season tickets are only $130 for first year! If you're in the duluth area this is a great place to ski... Full Review
