We have been busy over the summer making improvements to Mont Ripley including hauling hundred of loads of dirt to fill in low spots on the hill. We completely disassembled the Husky Chair Lift for regular maintenance and are in the process of putting it back together. This is going to be a great ski and snowboard season!
To get back into things we have several events planned for this fall. Fall color tour chair lift rides begin Saturday, October 5, and Sunday, October 6, from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm and continue the following weekend. Friday, October 11, rides are available from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Saturday and Sunday, October 12 and 13 rides will be from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Cost of the ride is just $5 or $4 for Michigan Tech students.
The annual MRRT Ski Swap fundraiser at Mont Ripley is coming up the following weekend on October 19. Equipment drop off is that morning and the night before.
The Ski and Snowboard Club at Michigan Tech will be presenting the movie “Into the Mind” on October 11 at 9:00 pm for ages 18 and up and October 12 at 7:30 pm for all ages at the Continental Fire Co in Houghton. Tickets are just $5 and are available online along with more information at www.mtuski.com.
