  • 49 Degrees North Mountain Resort

    49 Degrees North Mountain Resort

    In July of 2009, 49° North began a major resort improvement project on Angel Peak, located northwest of the summit of Chewelah Mountain.  60 acres of the Angel Peak project area were transformed into seven new, wide-open runs, and 170 acres were selectively thinned to create more of the legendary gladed terrain that the resort is known for.  The Angel Peak project was completed in August of 2009.

  • Ausblick Ski Area

    Ausblick Ski Area

    Ausblick ski area (which means “scenic view or overlook” or letters rearranged "A Ski Club") dates back to the early 1950’s. Reverend Raphael Hockhaus, S.J., a WWII combat Catholic chaplain, sought out a ski hill site for Marquette University’s Avalanche Club, which had been skiing at other area locations including Slinger and just west of Menomonee Falls. He drove around and found the site in early spring, 1950, days after the Avalanchers learned they were losing the hill they used in the Slinger area. "One look at that big thing towering up into the noon sun," he said, "and we knew that was what we wanted - even though we were almost two miles away when we saw it." It was part of the John & Myrtle Condon farm. A contract (copy in Dennis Evinrude’s file) shows that the university purchased the hill from John & Myrtle on November 1, 1950 for $5,000. The Condon's still own farm land south of our hill top (in their mid 80's as of January, 2002), leasing it out to other neighboring farmers.

  • Beaver Creek Resort

    Beaver Creek Resort

    At the gate, you leave everyday life behind. That's why people travel to Beaver Creek, Colorado from all over the world, and many make it a tradition. The drama of rock and sky, the sheer grandeur of this place, is one reason. That it is North America's World Cup mountain is another.

    It is also a place of intimacy. A private resort hidden from view, with the power to bring people together. "The consummate kid-friendly resort." That's what SKI Magazine has called Beaver Creek, and strolling through the square you can see why. It is a modern, custom-designed resort with the cozy, unhurried feel of an Alpine village.
