Downhill and Telemark Skiing
Experience the thrill of swooshing down the slopes in the Twin Cities. Or if telemark skiing is more your speed, try "free-heeling" it down our hills. Hyland Hills Ski Area in Bloomington and the Elm Creek Winter Recreation Area in Maple Grove offer downhill ski areas for all skill levels, from training hills to Olympic-level training jumps. The downhill ski areas feature snowmaking and well-groomed hills for unbeatable winter fun.
Three Rivers Parks Ski Patrol is always looking for enthusiastic Alpine and Nordic skiers and snowboarders who enjoy helping others in a winter environment. Contact Ashley O'Rourke, Volunteer Supervisor to learn more, 763.694.7802.
