Grand Avenue Nordic Center


 Project Status: Construction

 Project Overview: 

The proposed Grand Avenue Nordic Center will be a 3.3KM cross country ski trail with state-of-the-art snowmaking and lighting providing a dependable season-long venue for recreational skiing, youth activities and regional high school events. The location is adjacent to the Spirit Mountain alpine ski area, in West Duluth and next to their Grand Avenue Chalet. The project will become a regional center of activity for cross country skiing by extending the season early and late and provide skiing when there is inadequate natural snow. The lighting will provide the opportunity for early morning and night skiing. Phase II of the project will provide for a total of 5km of trail and connect the Grand Avenue Nordic Center to the Spirit Mountain Nordic Center by way of a two-way trail to the top of the mountain.
