Downhill and Telemark Skiing
Experience the thrill of swooshing down the slopes. Or if telemark skiing is more your speed, try "free-heeling" it down our hills. Hyland Hills Ski Area in Bloomington and the Winter Recreation Area at Elm Creek 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.
If you’ve never tried skiing before, there are lessons at Hyland Hills Ski Area and the Elm Creek Winter Recreation Area with equipment rentals and practice hills to get you started. As your skills improve, move up to the more challenging hills or hit the jumps and ramps on our freestyle terrain.
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.
