A short drive from Grand Forks, just 21kms to the west, sits our family-friendly ski hill: Welcome to Phoenix Mountain.

With more than 800 feet of vertical and 15 runs, this small mountain is perfect for families to get out and enjoy during the winter months.

From beginner to advance, visitors can spend the day, or a few hours on the hill and be back in town by dinner!
