Spirit Mountain Day Trip

As of 12/27/13, we have about 15 seats left! Time is running out so sign up soon! If you haven't paid online yet, please do so immediately (RSVP's on meetup are NOT enough to guarantee a seat, you must pay at www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html ).

Join Sitzmark on a day trip to Spirit Mountain in Duluth. 

 $55 includes: lift ticket; deluxe coach bus ride; breakfast bagels, juice, as well as other snacks and pop on the bus for the ride up and on the way back; and discounts on rentals: $15 skis or $20 snowboards. Bus will depart at 7:30am and arrive at Spirit Mt around 10am. 

Upon arrival, just gather your equipment and head to the Fireside Room (next to the Moosehead Lodge) to settle in and change. You may leave your stuff in the Fireside Room, but we cannot guarantee complete security. We reserved the room all day, and they hoped to provide a waiter for service from the Moosehead lodge. 

This unbeatable price for a day of great skiing is being offered to members of Sitzmark and other MSC clubs for $55. Non-members may attend for $60. This day trip will sell out fast, so sign up ASAP. To guarantee your seat, you must pay online at http://www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html.

Limit of 50 people. The bus will board at 7 am at the Honeywell parking lot and leave at 7:30 am sharp (2600 Ridgeway Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55413). For the return trip, the bus will board Spirit Mountain at 5 pm for a 5:30pm departure. We plan to be back to the Honeywell parking lot around 8pm.

Last year, we had about 40 people from Sitzmark, Traverskis and 3M, and everyone wanted to go back again! 

If you wait to the last minute, you can call me (or just show up at the bus) and see if I let you on at 730am if someone cancels. It's like flying stand-by and you take a risk of being turned down! As of 12/27/13, we only had 15 seats left, so the trip could fill up, so it's best to pay now.

    Very well planned trip with a cohesive group of friendly people who love to ski. I enjoyed the games on the bus ride. I even learned some new words!

    Also to let you know that on the Duluth news the Spirit II Express Chair broke and won't be running; they had to send the part to WI and don't know when it will be fixed. It was originally supposed to be nice tomorrow around 18-20 but now they have changed the forecast, the cold front is moving in sooner then they expected and it will be 0 tomorrow and a little breezy, so dress warm!

    Look toward the waterfront at 6:00pm for fireworks that will be on display from the Bentleyville waterfront lights display.

    Sally,

    This is Kay from the Ski Hawks. I would love to go to Spirit Mtn, but with the cold temps is there any chance this trip will be postponed for a week or two? The breeze off Lake Superior makes Spirit Mtn a little colder than local slopes most of the time, and with the predicted single digit temps I'm afraid it won't be so fun to be on the slopes on Jan. 4. Thoughts?

    Happy New Year,

    Kay

      I am thinking that it would be too hard to replan this due to reservations and all of the people who have planned on this day....But, I agree the warmer the better! I am skiing tomorrow at Afton, so anything above zero will be fine with me!

      December 31, 2013

    • Kay

      Yes, I totally understand. Just thought I'd check. I used to have a season pass to Spirit Mountain, so I know it's often windy and a bit chillier than the local slopes. But it's a great place to ski and if you can stay warm it will be a terrific day.
