Well, sorta.... I heard on the radio today that Mount Frontenac, a ski resort south of Red Wing, is closing on Mondays and Tuesdays to cater to sleds for the rest of the year. $30 to ride all day...

It's sad but true, this Tues I am going to head down there...need to get a few miles on the sled before the UP trip in two weeks.

Better than nothing...the hills should be fun...

Slider- what will it be like? Will they just let everyone ride wherever they want, or is there a track of some sorts, or what?

Thx.

I am from Stewartville, and myself and a few other buddies are heading out there on tuesday to see what it is like. I am not sure what to expect but hopefully it will be worth the 30 bucks.

Definitely... would be a good place to hook up

I'm sure they'd loan us a sno-cat to plow up a few jumps....

If I go on Tues, I'll post some thoughts afterwards.

I was there this afternoon just too check it out here's the scoop.

Monday's and Tuesday's 8:30-5:00 $30 for the day.

The whole course is open except for 1 run and the golf course. They said about 1.25 miles total. I have a map but can't shrink it for some reason.

The rules are as follows.

1) Absolutely no snowmobiles on the golf course! If you violate this rule you will be asked to leave, also if there is any damage to the golf course criminal charges will be filed.
2) Always keep to the RIGHT and obey all traffic markers.
3) No speeds in excess of 55 miles per hour. The first time thru the area take it slow and get to know the hiles and trails.
4) Please stay away from all lift loading areas and rope tows.
5) any person that we feel is being unsafe to either fellow riders or the area will be asked to leave and no refund will be given.
6) No alcohol consumption.
7) If you are under 18 you must be with a parent and they must sign the waiver.
Mt. Frontenac reserves the right to discontinue this at ahytime, or hours could change so please call each week for an update on riding dates and times.

I was out there today and am going back tuesday. I got 50 miles on and I started at 2:00pm. Went till 5:00pm. Went great had a blast.

The Casino owens the ski hills and frankly I would rather ride the ski hills for thirty bucks then play slots an loose thirty bucks at the casino.

No one got killed either. People acctually stayed in control.


Who do I look for tomorrow.

If you are going tomorrow put a pic of your sled up so I know who to look for.

If you see this sled its me.
