Operations Update 12.19.2023

Hi Everyone!

For over three decades, Giants Ridge has proudly hosted the Mesabi East Nordic Invitational ski race, the largest High School Nordic Ski race in the nation. Each year, the event draws over 1000 participants along with numerous enthusiastic fans and spectators.


With the limited natural snowfall this year, Giants Ridge has made the difficult decision to suspend Alpine operations on January 6th, 2024, from 9 am to 4 pm. This temporary suspension is essential to allow the race to utilize the machine-made snow across the alpine area, ensuring a conducive environment for the competition.


To our valued alpine guests, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused during this period. We intend to resume normal alpine operations at 4 pm on that evening, including the scheduled night skiing. Please note that the Burnt Onion, Food Court, and all other resort operations will continue to function as usual.


While this situation is unusual, we extend our gratitude for your understanding and support. We encourage all our winter-loving guests to come together and cheer on these exceptional high school athletes as they compete at Giants Ridge.


We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to providing an exceptional experience for both our guests and participants during this event.


Thank you for being a part of the Giants Ridge community.
