Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board Ski Trail Passes

You can pick up your ski trail pass at The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park during these upcoming dates and times (more will be listed soon):

Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, we will not be having ski pass pick-up on Friday this week. Thank you for supporting us and we hope you enjoy time with your family!

  • Saturday, Nov. 28: 8-12pm
  • Sunday, Nov. 29: 8-12pm
  • Monday, Nov. 30: 8-12pm

On-site pass sales will be available at The Trailhead this season during the dates/times above, however, we recommend purchasing online if you are able. Unlike last year when skiers filled out their information at an online kiosk, skiers will be able to purchase ski trail passes from a customer service representative with cash or debit/credit card. You will need to purchase family passes (ordering passes for more than one person in your household) online in order to receive the discount.

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

Please note that there is no ability to ski on snowmaking or lighted trails with this 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, not the lighted/snowmaking loop. For instance, someone who is interested primarily in skiing on the Chain of Lakes or at Hiawatha or Columbia.
