As we work towards a successful and safe winter season, we ask that you be patient with us as we establish new processes and streamlined product offering. Below are a few changes you will need to plan for. Please keep in mind this list will change with the COVID environment accordingly.

Online Reservations Required

For the 2020-21 season, all activities will require advance registration and payment. These options will be available on our website at Activities will include:

  • Lift Tickets
  • Rentals
  • Lessons
  • Tubing

Guests will be asked to arrive during the time period that they signed up for. Please do not arrive significantly early or late, as we will not be able to accommodate changes to your purchased reservation. The best way to think of this is in terms of golf tee times. Refunds or exchanges will not be offered as you will have absorbed capacity that would have been sold to another customer.

Limited Touch or Cashless Transactions

  • Touch-free and remote payments will allow for limited in-person interaction, with guest questions able to be answered by emailing or calling 218-844-7669.
  • Due to COVID-19 concerns Detroit Mountain is moving all ticketing and rental sales online and our system is unable to process gift cards online. If you have purchased a gift card and want to use it to buy advance tickets, please contact Guest Services by emailing or calling 218-844-7669.
  • If you would like to gift someone a visit to Detroit Mountain, please consider purchasing them a single day reservation on the hill.
