What: Spirit Mtn Day for Downhill/Boarding/XC skiing

Where: Spirit Mountain
9500 Spirit Mtn Place
Duluth, MN 55808Spirit Mountain - 22 Downhill Runs
Whether you?re an expert or beginner on the slopes, Spirit Mt has runs perfectly suited for your ability. We?ve got everything from the family-friendly ?Four Pipe? to the expert run ?Gandy Dancer?, and even some fun favorites like ?Timber Cruiser?.
Spirit Mtn offers 22 kilometers of beautifully wooded cross-country ski trails, groomed daily with classic skiing tracks and skating lanes. It's an outdoor enthusiast's dream!
With only a few minor details left to work out, this day adventure has now been set up for downhill/boarding and even XC skiing. So let's ride!
We need to have at least 40 people to get the pricing that's outlined below. We will have a 47 passenger bus, but we like to leave at least 2 rows or 4 seats open where we can set up for food, drinks etc. So if we get more than the 40 we can further reduce our price or use the extra money for a bus driver tip. So the prices below don't reflect any tips.
We will make one stop on the way up at Toby's that cinnamon roll favorite hot spot; and one stop on the way back for dinner and for those who want to skip dinner some gampbling...at the Black Bear Casino.
The bus price per person, with 40 going will be $28.50 (includes on-line payment fee) roundtrip.
Lift tickets are $38 for adults and $40 for youth if we get less than 19 people. But since we'll get more than that the lift tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for youth.
XC day passes are $7.
So as you can see it'll cost less than $60 to ski and ride up to Duluth, cause someone else will be doing the driving. Munchies and drinks can be brought on the bus, but please drink within reason.
Projected departure time is 7:00am from the Honeywell parking lot in NE Minneapolis (don't worry your vehicles will be safe, as the lot is patrolled.) We'll leave Spirit around 5pm, stop for dinner/gambling at the Black Bear Casino (approx 1.5 hours) and that should get us back to the Honeywell parking lot around 9pm. Still time to go out and whoop it up.
