Yes it is Midwest skiing, but for a 70 year old guy, Wild Mountain gives me everything I need.: well groomed slopes, no wait for the lift (Friday), knowledgeable staff, quality and reasonably priced food. A 30 minute drive from home is a big plus ! I recommend 1/2 price Wednesday if your schedule allows. A $23 lift ticket is hard to beat.

The reason for a 4 star rating instead of 5 is because of a worker named Heidi. Our group had a total of 7 people. We all had purchased tickets online already and checked in separately at the SAME TIME. Apparently we had checked in during shift change and the first 4 in our group received a colored tag that was different from the remainder 3 (who were at a different register being helped by someone else) of our group. We realized this and asked Heidi (who gave out tags to the first four) about it and asked that the first four would get the same tag color as the other 3 so that our time expires at the same time because we did check in at the same time. Heidi rolled her eyes at me when I asked her about the situation and refused to give me the correct tag color. She then stated "Well, most people don't stay for their 2 hours." So then I asked to have the correct tag color and she said she would have to ask her manager. Her manager did not hesitate at all or have any issues with giving us the correct tag color. Her behavior was rude and uncalled for.

Dear Phillip L, Thank you for taking the time to write your review and to let us know about the way you were treated at the time of your check-in. I am thankful that our manager took care of you right away. I apologize that the situation wasn't rectified immediately by the initial ticket seller. It should not have had to get to the management level. We will use your review as a "learning tool" both for Heidi as well as all of our staff. We hire a lot of young people in our community and while we do a lot of training sometimes they need to be reminded about Customer Service and what our Guests expect. Thank you for coming Snow Tubing with your group. We appreciate the business!

The hills at Wild Mountain are good, a great variety of green, blue, and black diamond hills. What wasn’t great was the lack of enforcing COVID precautions. Over 75% of the skiers and snowboarders there were not wearing face masks, even though there are signs around Wild Mountain. They weren’t just not wearing masks when skiing, but in the lift lines when they were near people as well. I even saw employees who were lift attendants not wearing masks. At other ski hills I’ve went to the mask requirements were heavily enforced, however, at Wild Mountain I saw no employees telling skiers and snowboarders to wear their masks even though there were signs saying masks are required.

First time visiting Wild Mountain, a small northern Minnesota ski hill. Wild traditionally opens early for 2020, October 20th. I went up on Oct. 31, a rope tow and one chair with two runs were open. It’s early season but I still got to ski in October for the first time. Temps were warm so it was like spring season in the fall. May have to make a return trip this winter when the whole hill is open. Summer would be a fun visit as well. Mountain coaster, water slide etc.

Why should anyone pay $43 to ski the handful of runs here when Afton gives 10 bucks off each visit after you get the free lift card that you carry inside your jacket? I'll go here when I want some peace and quiet, but half the time they aren't even running all the lifts!

Great day for our family of 4 kids were home from school and wanted to ski. Took advantage of friends and family discount and saved a significant amount. Definitely check into that and the military discount. It was not busy at all. Checkin was smooth and gear seemed to be very good. Slopes were in great shape. We do not snowboard but they have one slope with huge jumps and kids were doing flips. Super fun to watch. Nice and close to the cities. We would go back in a heartbeat.

I can not say enough about the ski instructors/ ski patrol and staff at Wild Mountain. I have been wanting to take My son, who is deathly afraid of heights, skiing but was very hesitant. I decided I would sign up for a private lesson right away. We were greeted and introduced to Steve Nelson the ski instructor for the private lesson. I honestly didn’t know if the instructor would be able to get my son to even try skiing. Within about 20 min I noticed they were in line at the chair lift! Kellen came down smiling ear to ear!! Thank you Steve for your patience and your great ski lesson. We will be setting up more lessons with Steve for sure. We arrived at Wild Mountain at 9:30am and I had to tell him the day was over at 7:40pm. The high was 10 degrees but he could have cared less. We got in our truck, my son looked at me and said “ That was awesome, can we come back tomorrow?” “Why did I wait so long to learn how to ski??!!”
My son was skiing down even the most difficult hills by the afternoon.

I did everything online a few days ahead of time. We arrived, the staff pulled up our reservation, hand us our lift tickets and showed us where to get the rental equipment for my son and where to go for the lesson. The staff working on slopes running the chair lifts were so helpful and polite as well!! My nephew took a tumble and so I also got a chance to briefly chat with the ski patrol. They too were fantastic. They checked my nephew out, made sure he was okay. We will be back!! Fantastic staff!!!!
