Local ski hills begin making snow

DULUTH, MN — The Northland’s ski hills are starting to capitalize on the frigid forecast by firing up their snow guns.

Spirit Mountain officials told KBJR 6 that they began making artificial snow Thursday morning. The hill’s executive director, Brandy Ream, said it’s still too early to confirm an opening day, but they plan to shoot for Thanksgiving weekend.

Up the North Shore, Lutsen Mountain started blowing snow Wednesday night. If all goes according to plan, they hope to have runs open by Saturday, November 17.

Lusten has also added a live web cam to its website, where skiers and snowboarders can watch the snow making progress.

Just outside of Duluth, Mont du Lac officials said they wanted to start making snow Wednesday night, but the temperatures weren’t cold enough. They told KBJR 6 their snow guns are on the hill and ready to go as soon as the weather cooperates.

Opening dates will depend on the weather.
