More than a Century of Winter Family Fun.


Welcome To Mt. Itasca!

Mt. Itasca offers something for everyone. We have a rich history of skiing dating back to 1906. With deep roots in jumping, the hill continues to grow offering cross -country skiing, lift access downhill skiing and snowboarding, tubing, and biathlon.

The venues at Mt. Itasca are awesome for beginners and competitive skiers. With full snow-making capabilities and professional grooming machines, Mt. Itasca is ready for fun early in the season.

Ski / Snowboard

Mt Itasca is a wonderful place to learn how to ski and snowboard. Start on our longer, gentler “bunny hill” run, ski the main run, or when you’re ready, ride our Area 51 terrain park!


Our tubing hill is the most thrilling in northern Minnesota. Visit during regular hours or reserve the hill for your own private party.
