Closed for the Season

Opened door on a field during winter which leads to a warmer season. Changing season through the door concept. Mont Ripley logo.

Thank you to our local customers, out of town guests, Michigan Tech students and the Houghton-Hancock and surrounding communities for an excellent season!

Special thank you goes out to every member of our crew. Who’s effort, attitude and love for the sport and all that ski and ride here is exceptional.

Shout out for our incredible snowmakers; who’s efforts made it possible for Mont Ripley to be the 2nd ski area in the U.P to open, and the 2nd to last to close this season.

We can’t wait to ski and ride with you again next season. Thank you again for your incredible, unwavering support!

Until then, Think Snow!

A Courteous Reminder

The Ripley Rental Department would like to encourage all season renters to make rental reservations with a 30+ minute lead time prior to coming to the hill.

Rentals reserved with less than an adequate lead time can expect a delay in picking up equipment.

Due to increased need for rental equipment for our guests, Renters who make equipment reservations that are not picked-up will not be allowed to pre-reserve equipment on future visits.

Rental reservations are a courtesy and were intended to decrease your wait time and need to come inside the building. If issues with pick-ups continue to increase, it may become necessary to discontinue this service.
