Marquette Mountain under new management and making major changes

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC)- The Marquette Mountain ski hill has recently come under new management and renovations have already begun. Along with repainting buildings around the campus, new lighting and an updated food and drink menu are planned.

Manager Frank Malette says lowering daily and yearly lift prices is also high on his list of changes. He also wants to start a natural snow section on the hill, free from any artificial powder. He says it's all part of giving people more of what they want at an affordable price.

“This is a gem,” said Frank Malette, Marquette Mountian Manager. “Marquette Mountain, attached to the city of Marquette, there's not a lot of communities in America that have that. For us, it's a really special place. The ownership of the mountain respects that. We know the community reveres the property. We want to make sure we give them what they expect.”

Season passes go on sale July first starting at $250. Day passes will be sold at $25 a ticket.
