Wild Mountain Continues Making Improvements

Wild-Mountain-ski-area Wild Mountain one of Minnesota's most popular ski areas.

Wild Mountain, Minnesota's long-time ski area, continues to make improvements since it was purchased two years ago by new owners. It first opened in 1972 and has had only two owners.

Before the start of this season, they added a new bar, lounge, and sundeck, and updated the Bear's Den and Upper Commons with new lighting, carpet, and paint. They have announced two new high-impact projects that will be done over the summer and ready for next winter. Bathroom space is being doubled and a new family bathroom, perfect for parents with little kids, will also be added. The Eagle's Nest is getting a new kitchen, modern menu and the decor is being updated to upgrade the dining experience at the ski area. Add to that a new wall of windows for expansive views of the ski area to enjoy while dining. A new entrance and guest drop-off area are also in the works.

Wild is also continuing to find ways to reduce energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions and eliminate plastic waste. They are working to install a new solar array on the roof of a new maintenance building. During the summer months, the installation will generate far more power than the building will consume with unused energy flowing back into the grid for others. It's the first carbon-neutral certified ski area in North America.

Today Wild Mountain operates the ski area on 100-percent clean energy, and the culinary program has stopped over 500,000 pieces of single-use plastic from entering the waste stream.

Kudos to the new forward-thinking owners.

The ski area offers 26 trails, four terrain parks, and eight lifts including four quads. They are always one of the first Midwest ski areas to open for the season and often one of the last to close offering season pass holders a guarantee of at least 100 days of snowsports during the ski season. The 2022/23 season passes are currently on sale through April 4 when they will be going up $100.
