Opening Day
2022-2023 Season


We are planning to open skiing and snowboarding December 3, 2022. The opening date is dependent on cold weather in November so we have a chance to make enough snow for safe skiing on our main run. Once the main run is ready, we move on to the Area 51 terrain park and our tubing run.

Mountain Info

We are a small ski and snowboarding hill offering winter sports opportunities to the communities of Coleraine, Grand Rapids, Itasca County, and anyone who visits the area. We have a focus on introducing kids to winter sports, and we are overhauling our rental program so that we can offer the best and safest equipment available. During summer 2022, we plan to install a new handle tow lift to make skiing and snowboarding more accessible to small kids who are on skis or a snowboard for the first time.

Come ride our Area 51 Terrain Park, which offers challenges for snowboarders of all skill levels, ski down our main run, or take a gentler route on our mellower “bunny hill”. Our snowmaking and daily Pistenbully grooming ensures you will have the experience of a larger ski area at a local community hill.
