Thank you International Students!

On Sunday, January 26th Mont Ripley hosted our Annual International Day for Michigan Tech students.

We wish to extend a special thank you to Laura Givens, Bob Wentz and the International Program & Services Office for their volunteers, organization and help preparing for the day.

Students enjoyed a day full of skiing and snowboarding lessons, and snow tubing.

Mont Ripley would like to offer a discounted rate on rental equipment and lessons and invite all International Day participants to join us again!

$20.00 rental package (skis or snowboard, boots, helmet)
$40.00 rental & 1.5 hour lesson (1 on 1 or group)

Stay tuned for photos and videos of the day highlighting the joy shared by all involved.

Thank you ISP and our International Guests!

After School and 4-H Classes are ON!

Mont Ripley After School and 4-H Programs WILL take place tonight beginning at 4:00 p.m.

Although the Houghton/Keweenaw County schools are closed today, Mont Ripley only cancels classes if the temperature is 0° at class time.

Enjoy your day off of school and come to Mont Ripley tonight for your ski and snowboard lessons and enjoy the fresh snow.

Quick reminder: If you need rental equipment and you have not yet been fitted, please arrive as early as possible prior to your lesson to avoid being late for class!

Who needs gear?

After School Participants and Michigan Tech students taking ski or snowboard classes;

Please make sure to arrive at least 30 minutes ahead of your class starting time to allow time to pick up rental equipment, if needed.

If you are renting for the first time and have not paid, or you have not yet been fitted for your equipment, please attempt to visit Mont Ripley prior to your first day of class. If that is not possible, please arrive more than 30 minutes ahead of time! Come to the ticket office for any payments.

Please be patient with the office and rental staff as we prepare for classes to resume this week. The first week is always the most difficult.

The race room is located just to the Northwest of the chalet. Pick up rental gear first, inside the main entrance and then head straight there. Michigan Tech Students can swipe for a day pass at class.
