Cross Country Skiing at Mountain Villas

Adjacent to the Mountain Villas resort, the Upper Spirit Mountain Nordic Trails are 22 kilometers of beautifully wooded cross-country ski trails, double tracked with skating lanes, and accessible from the nearby Spirit Mountain Nordic Center. This trail system connects to Spirit Mountain's Grand Avenue Nordic trails, the Magney-Snively ski trail system, and also to the Superior Hiking Trail. It is a joint endeavor of the city of Duluth, the Duluth Cross-Country Ski Club, and Spirit Mountain Recreation Area.

If you would like to stay in a villa where the cross country trails are steps away from your villa, please call to make your reservation rather than book online.

On this trail map, the Mountain Villas office is in the northernmost black trail area.

Mountain Villas are the perfect place to stay if you are a cross country skier!
