With several trails already in place, including easy and more-difficult flow trails built by Trail Solutions, Spirit Mountain in Duluth, MN, is not resting ahead of next season. Trail Solutions is back on the site and building a gravity trail that takes advantage of the naturally rocky terrain. Scheduled to be completed later this fall, the trail will be open in 2014.
Spirit Mountain is already seeing lift lines in the summer, something that has never happened before. With a solid mountain bike offering the ski hill is able to better capitalize on the off-season and ensure its continued year-round operation.
Special thanks to everyone on the team, including Renee and Glenn at Spirit Mountain, the Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS), Quality Bicycle Parts, and the Copper Harbor Trails Club.
