You don't visit Minnesota to ski, but we decided to check it out while we were in Duluth. Spirit Mountain is just a few miles inland from Lake Superior and has some breathtaking views from the top. We visited on a quiet weekday in January...More

Convenient location just outside of Duluth. Several longer green and blue runs. Chalet was in a good location - easy in and out. Recommend as a good option for people with young kids.

Small, local ski hill with a few runs, short stretches of blue-level pitches and night skiing. Ski in/out rental shop, young staff. Free parking can get extremely crowded on weekends.

Arrive 45 minutes after they opened. Got the all day pass for $45, but that was a mistake. Only got three rides in, and that was JUST barely as we had to run (up hill) to catch the last chair lift at 5:56PM. In fairness,...More

We also bought on site. Make sure to keep an eye on the weather. They seem to close parts down for the slightest weather.
