What's this? A mini excavator arriving at Marquette Mountain? It's officially time to build some trail!!!
If you're wondering on how you can help with our ambitious initiatives, please consider volunteering for a trail building crew. We are a couple weeks away from needing extra hands here, but by helping out the NTN with their projects you will help free up their operators. In turn, they will be able to come help us keep this machine running as much as possible.
Currently the NTN is working on a new section of trail in Big Bay and really need some helpers. Please join this page to hear where and when you can help the NTN and in turn the MM Bike Park build new trail for YOU! www.facebook.com/groups/254769722393073/
Our mountain biking future is looking as bright as the July sun 🌞 ... See MoreSee Less
We are incredibly excited to announce plans to invest heavily in new initiatives throughout the resort this summer and fall. These initiatives include aggressive hillside improvements, unique facility upgrades and new employment opportunities.
“Recognizing the need for safe year round outdoor recreation, now more than ever, we are transforming our gravity mountain biking and tree skiing experience to offer a four season outdoor playground.” says Eric Jorgensen, Marquette Mountain Resort President.
Marquette Mountain plans to hire 30-45 new employees in the coming weeks. These new positions will provide a wide range of vital jobs to the community. If you are interested in learning more about the available openings, please visit marquettemountain.com/employment.
Extensive facility upgrades are underway which include renovations to the TBar along with a multitude of plans to prepare for a busy ski season and record breaking wedding and event reservations for 2021.
Plans are underway to expand the tree skiing (known as glades). By making hillside improvements, sections of woods will become havens for kids, powder hounds and thrill seekers alike. With a thick canopy established, the improvements made this year will greatly increase the skiable acreage and terrain diversity for years to come. With numerous cliffs and steep runs, combined with the lake-effect snow, Marquette Mountain will feel like the Rocky Mountains more than ever before.
In addition, a need was identified to create biking trails that cater to families and new riders for a beginner/intermediate journey style trail starting at the top of the mountain traveling to the bottom. With plans to build a wide, smooth and exhilarating run, it will feel more like a roller coaster than a bike trail. Improvements to the existing six trails are also in the plans so that riders can enjoy them as soon as the snow thaws in the spring.
“Although the times are uncertain for all of us right now, one thing is for sure, our community needs safe and sustainable year round outdoor recreation,” says Andrew Farron, Marquette Mountain General Manager. “We are committed to continuing our investments to further expand our guests' experience and inspire outdoor enthusiasts.” ...

More beginner-level trails like NTN South's Grom please! With the campground near by there's a huge need for those.
Bringing back disc golf?
Alex Wesley Bianchi here ya go. Get something you like to do
Would bike trails be open and free or require a pass to be purchased? Once the chain link went up in recent times access hasn't been easy. The trail running group was told to find somewhere else to run even though it had been using it for years.
Bringing back the Carp River Saloon?
This is great news
Alyssa dude I hope we get snow before I have to leave, otherwise I’m staying.
It is so awesome to see the future of Marquette Mountain being shaped by "our" new owner, and manager! I love this place, and look forward to all the new possibilities.
Marquette Mountain How about a tube run ?
A year round roller coaster would be impressive
When can we get season passes?
Any news on season passes? I’ve normally already purchased mine at a reduced price!
They need to know make it user friendly! Let ski clubs know when they have racing using one of the best runs. Let the clubs bring there own food if they want and make the runs interesting by having some hills on the runs as well as some good music. Drinks specials don't hurt. Have someone there to help out the ski clubs when they get there and say good bye and thanks for coming when they leave. Discount on food wouldn't hurt all this is first grade stuff. Two snow board parks are a plus but keep it to half a hill so the reas of us can use it. Don't have to give that great of a discount to the club but treat us special and we will come back every year
