Minnesota's Wild Mountain First To Open In Midwest; Trollhaugen, Wisc. Plans Saturday Debut
It’s a Halloween opening for Wild Mountain in Taylors Falls, Minn., sticking with a 40-year tradition of being the first Midwest resort to open.
It’s just slightly later than the last two winters (2013 was Oct. 22; 2012 was Oct. 7 — the first in the nation).
Wild’s Amy Frischmon said the Front Steps terrain park and a rope tow will be in operation Friday. But, if weather predictions are accurate, she said Expressway, an intermediate run, a chairlift and second rope tow will be added.
“We are excited to have our winter friends out enjoying the slopes again,” she said. “Wear your Halloween costumes today.”
Meanwhile, Trollhaugen in Dresser, Wisc. has been making snow since late Thursday night (10/30) with plans to continue through Halloween night. The goal is to open a couple runs Saturday mid-morning serviced by both a chairlift and a high-speed rope tow, with a well stocked terrain park set from the start.
