Giving Opportunities

We thank you for your consideration of a gift to the Expansion Fund at Mont Ripley. Mont Ripley has become a skiing destination over the last 20 years. We must now continue to advance our operation to be sustainable into the future so we may continue to serve the needs of our Michigan Tech students, our local community, and the growing number of regional guests.

Chalet Upgrade & Expansion

Generous gifts to this fund will be used to upgrade and expand the chalet. The level of expansion, based on funds, varies from minor amenity upgrades to an entirely new chalet. 

Beginner Skiers

Top to Bottom Beginner Run

In order to best serve all guests, a new top to bottom beginner run is necessary. A new green run would be established to the far East side of the current skiable terrain. 

Groomer and Lift

Lifts & Equipment Upgrades

Lift and equipment maintenance, while not as exciting, cannot be overlooked. Gifts to this fund will help us maintain a high level of excellence and safety in lift operations and grooming.

Snowy Cars

Parking Lot Expansion

Another not-so-glamourous, but much needed upgrade is to the parking lot. Funds to the area will be used for the purchase of adjacent property allowing for an expansion of the current lot.
