I had the pleasure of visiting Wild Mountain for the first time this past weekend. At just over an hour away from the Twin Cities in Taylors Falls, it was pretty easy to get to, even with massive blizzard swirling around us.
My visit to Wild Mountain was only my second time skiing in Minnesota. Up to now, I had largely considered the Midwest to be the exclusive dominion of cross-country skiing, hardly downhill ski territory. If you have similar thoughts, or simply don’t know where to get started, I recommend you check out Snow Places, which is a great resource for learning more about what the Midwest has to offer for downhill sports. Did you know there are 100 ski areas in the Midwest?! Snow Places puts all the information you need in one convenient place to find the getaway right for you.
As for Wild Mountain itself, I found it to be on the beginner to intermediate end for skiing. I’m an intermediate skier and only felt challenged on the black diamond routes. If you are more skilled, I’d stick to the double black diamond run and the multiple terrain courses. If you’re a novice skier, this is a really great place to start. There are plenty of easy routes and multiple lesson options to get you started. For example, they offer “first timer lessons”, private lessons, group lessons, women teaching women, parent + tot and more. There’s a lesson suitable for everyone. If you aren’t a skier/snowboarder at all, you can still take advantage of snow tubing to get your thrill.
