Many Northlanders head to Spirit Mountain during the winter months to ski and snowboard, but General Manager, Jody Ream says during the summer the fun continues.

"Well, you know we've got some of the premier downhill trails in the region, everything from entry level beginner downhill all the way up through double blacks.  So, we've got a pretty good array of trail offerings."

Spirit Mountain has several downhill trails and Ream says they also offer a lift operation during certain days of the week.

"Typically the lift operation, the lift serve is Thursday through Sunday.  We do Thursday evenings, and then we do all day Friday's, Saturday's and Sunday's."

Ream says this is their busiest time of year for mountain biking.

"Lots of cool stuff going on, trails are pretty much dialed in.  We're cutting in peak season right now, so we're pretty stoked."

Spirit Mountain is currently running their summer mountain bike youth camps, and Education Program Director, Heidi Karlsson says these camps are available for kids ages fourth grade and up.

"We run them pretty much every week all summer, we have three levels.  We have an introduction to mountain biking, we have a beginning mountain biking and then we have an intermediate level mountain biking."
