This year will be the earliest that Mont Ripley has ever opened, thanks to some early Mother Nature snow combined with our snow making efforts. We will be open on White Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving through that Sunday. We will then be open full time starting on December 6.
In cooperation with Michigan Tech University, Tech students get unlimited access to Mont Ripley along with Tech hockey games, golf, and tennis, making Michigan Tech the only university to offer students a ski/snowboard package.
Mont Ripley, outfitted for skiers and snowboarders of every stripe, is home to one of the best downhill racing courses in the Midwest. Bonus: World-class cross-country trails await nearby on Michigan Tech’s campus.
Michigan Tech’s Winter Carnival, one of the largest in the Midwest, draws visitors February 4 – 8 for ski races, family activities and towering snow sculptures.
