The Mission of Detroit Mountain Recreation Area, Inc. is to promote sound environmental recreation and educational programming to develop the health and wellness of children, families and communities.
Detroit Mountain was a family-owned alpine ski operation for over 50 years. Shortly after it closed in 2004, local community members began discussing how the mountain could be revitalized into a year-round recreational facility. With this vision in mind, Detroit Mountain Recreation Area, Inc. was incorporated as a non-profit. After many discussions and research, a campaign to “Bring Back Detroit Mountain” was launched. With incredible support from the local community and beyond, Detroit Mountain is back!
Detroit Mountain Recreation Area, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. We are a 4-season recreational park that promotes sound environmental recreation and educational programming.
After reopening as a non-profit in 2014, our mission has been to provide recreational activities to Minnesota and North Dakota families. We partner with other non-profit groups through our Ski Angel program to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.
We are appreciative of every donation we receive! Your support goes a long way. Please consider donating to Detroit Mountain to keep the mountain alive!
