A pleasant surprise for skiing
I was skeptical... this place had all the red flags of a place that's completely overrated. Hyperbole in their advertising, exaggerating their vertical, more focus on selling the resort than the actual skiing. But no, this is a quality, well run ski area.

But let me put the brakes on just a little: anyone that calls this the best downhill skiing in Minnesota hasn't skied Lutsen. And that's fine... it's OK for this place to be Giant's Ridge and for Lutsen to be Lutsen. The lift tickets at Giant's Ridge were well less than half of what Lutsen was charging for the day we went, and for early season skiing it was not worth paying Lutsen prices for Lutsen. That's what led us to Giant's Ridge, and it left us with no regrets.

So they advertise 500' vertical, which is a significant exaggeration... it would mean that the top of their hill would be the highest peak in St, Louis county, which it isn't. confirms that 427' is the highest vertical of any of their lifts. Still, that's enough to put them well above the median for Minnesota ski areas. And I would say that due to the topography, their 427' vertical feels like more than Granite Peak's 610' vertical (yes, they exaggerate, too). The terrain is way more usable... Granite Peak is 300' that's too steep for some people followed by 300' that's too dull for the rest of us. Giant's Ridge has a much more usable topography for a ski hill. A lot of it wasn't open, but I found myself looking around thinking, "I'd like to come back and ski that when it's open... and that... and that..."

Oh, as for ratings, GR's ratings are a lot closer to Lutsen's ratings than Granite Peak's or the Michigan areas I know, where... GR has slopes that I consider much more legitimate black diamond.

I'll definitely be back.

The construction and trail building at Giants Ridge puts Vail, CO to shame.
2021年7月 • 夫妻情侣
The MTB trails were constructed by people who are clearly knowledgeable dedicated to the sport of Mountain biking and downhill biking. The names of the green and blue trails may not do proper justice to their intensity and pure “awesomeness”.

Unreal Downhill MTB!

Welch V? CLOSED. Spirit Mountain? CLOSED. Week in Whistler? Closed to all the Covid Americans! What to do with that 180mm big-hitter? Tool around the XC trails? Don’t do it! Load your gravity toys and go NOW to Giants Ridge and prepare for great downhill for any skill level + fast ascents on the high-speed lift and good vibes from the cool GR gate agents. They just completed Granite Gorge XX and Ribbits 1,2 & 3, which are not yet mapped but fun AF! Open Fri, Sat Sun but call to confirm. You should also bring your road bike and ride the just-completed Mesabi trail headed NE and turn around when it turns to gravel - 1hour10 RT and super scenic. We stayed at The Villas and you can ride to the condo and leave your car parked. Rental DH bikes if needed but book in advance for sure with Jeff. Totally great staycation and the Iron Range is beautiful no doubt!

Great Mountain Biking

Did the downhill trials here. Great fun and professionally developed. They have the new kids trail off the back which we tried so we could bring the 9 and 10 year old next time. The trails are lift served with a high speed lift. They rent bikes if you need one. And, the price is very reasonable. The Burnt Onion has a great lunch. All the people that work here go out of their way to help you. Super casual place with zero intimidation factor.

Also skied here and it has some great steep runs for Minnesota.

Giants Ridge Lodge

Very nice place to stay, fall colours starting to show. The Lodge was very quiet as it was the off season.

Played two rounds. The Legend was in good shape and we played in 3 1/2 hours. It is one of the most scenic golf course we have ever played. The Quarry was in excellent shape and the greens were fast. Slow play as it took 5 hours. No ranger to be seen.

The Quarry golf
2019年6月 • 好友
Great layout with beautiful scenery. The course was in great shape for early June. The greens were aerated but still reasonable. This is more of a shot makers course that would be a nightmare for a golfer who is shorter off the tee. The golf carts are old school and lack gps. Overall, a day well spent.

Wonderful ski resort!!
2019年2月 • 夫妻情侣
We will definitely ski Giants Ridge again! This place is fun & big enough when it seems busy too. Great place for families & beginners. They have a high-speed 4 person chair lift right out front the main chalet. The chalet is large & plenty of room with lots of other friendly skiers & boarders. The runs are groomed very well & they have some very fun tree runs too. Cross-country skiers can ride the chair lifts too. You'll also see snowmobilers stop in for lunch & fat-tire bikes around the resort enjoying the snow on nearby trails. Beautiful location in northern Minnesota to get away for the weekend! We're looking forward to skiing here again! We'll worth the drive!!!

Winter wonderland!

Loved it! Efficient mover of skiers. No long lines. Variable runs. Probably the best skiing in Minnesota. Only bummer was a lack of decent lodging.
