Summer Activities

The first pops of bright fall colors welcome you this weekend!  Explore the mountain or simply relax and enjoy a round-trip scenic skyride.  Our popular staff-led interpretive hikes depart from the top of the gondola at 11am and 1pm- learn about the region's history, ecology, and scenic views in a group walk.  Or, try one of our more challenging self-guided routes.  Carl Heilman's annual photo workshop and our downhill mountain biking camp are both happening this Saturday- join us!

Gondola Rides & Adventure Activities Every Weekend

Welcome September with a scenic ride aboard the Northwoods Gondola- the entire family will love it!  Cooler temperatures are setting in and the fall colors are starting to pop.  On the way up, relax and enjoy 360 degrees of panoramic beauty.  Breathtaking views from our observation deck are a few easy steps away from the unloading area.  Interpretive walks are offered 11am or 1pm both days, or explore a self-guided route to the summit or the Twister Cliffs.  Our gondola also services challenging downhill mountain biking terrain.

Major Improvements for 18-19

The snowmaking news is huge- we are adding 312 new guns and increasing our water pumping capacity by 2,000 gallons per minute!  A new pump house, new pipe, and the best automation technologies in the industry mean tons more snow for you to have fun on this season.  We've also added two more grooming tractors to the fleet, paved the entrance and walkways in the Base Area, and are busy with a two-level expansion to the Base Lodge that will double the size of the Tannery Pub!  Click to read about a noteworthy trail improvement on Lower Cloud too.

Skills Development Camp for Downhill Mountain Bikers
