Ski Season in the Midwest Starts Today

Taylors Falls, MN – Minnesota’s Wild Mountain is keeping its 41-year tradition of early openings alive, when today it becomes the first ski area to open this season in the Midwestern U.S.

Thanks to an unseasonably warm autumn, this is nevertheless Wild Mountain’s latest season opening since 2001, when it also opened on Nov. 20.
