Trail Passes

Improved snowmaking infrastructure will mean better skiing this year! We are extending the amount of snowmaking trails that we will have available for cross country skiing. And we are again offering Natural Snow Passes for those skiers who ski in the trail system on trails with natural snow only.

All-Access Pass

This pass is required to use all trails in the North Wirth Trails west of Theodore Wirth Parkway. This includes Hap Trails, Judy Loop, and Twin Lake Trail. This pass also allows the pass holder access to all groomed trails in the MPRB trail system, both snowmaking and natural snow.

Natural Snow Pass

This pass allows the pass holder to ski in natural snow areas only. This includes the Chain of Lakes Trails, the trails at Columbia, Hiawatha, the South Wirth and North Wirth Trails, except for the snowmaking/lighted areas (the Hap Lutter Snowmaking Loop, the Judy Loop, and the Twin Lake Trail). This pass is recommended for the casual skier who is interested in skiing in natural snow areas only. For instance, someone who is interested primarily in skiing on the Chain of Lakes or at Hiawatha or Columbia.

Please note that there is no ability to ski on snowmaking or lighted trails with this pass.
