Seasons Ski Trail Passes

All-Access Ski Pass

Get an All-Access Ski Pass to ski on all Minneapolis Parks trails, including on Theodore Wirth Park’s snowmaking trails where The Loppet Foundation’s continually-improving snowmaking capacity makes for great skiing all winter. This pass is required to use all trails in the North Wirth Trails west of Theodore Wirth Parkway. This includes Hap Lutter Trails, Judy Lutter 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 Ski Pass

Purchase a Natural Snow Ski Pass to have access only to the natural snow trails of Hiawatha Golf Course, Columbia Golf Course, Theodore Wirth Park, and The Chain of Lakes. This pass allows the pass holder to ski in natural snow areas only. This includes South Wirth and North Wirth Trails, except for the snowmaking/lighted areas (the Hap Lutter Snowmaking Loop, the Judy Lutter Loop, and the Twin Lake Trail). This pass is recommended for the 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 lit trails with this pass.
