If you’re a winter-weather enthusiast who can’t wait for that first snowfall of the year, Minnesota is calling for you! If you have a passion for winters spent skiing, snowboarding, or tubing, you’re bound to love the awesome accumulation of white stuff in the Gull Lake region. The Brainerd Lakes area gets an average of 44 inches of snowfall per year compared to the nation’s average of 28 inches, creating a promising place for downhill ski adventures in the Minnesota winter season.

Gull Lake is a popular outdoor recreation destination all year ‘round, and in the winter, it’s the heart of some of Minnesota’s best cold-weather adventures. A winter wonderland of opportunity abounds in this northern territory where a weekend getaway must be on the wintertime to-do list.

Without a doubt, a winter weekend of fun starts at Mount Ski Gull. Situated on the scenic western shores of Gull Lake, this winter sports hot spot is a great place for solo adventurers and families alike. And the best part is that our friends on the mountain have partnered with Gull Lake Beach Resorts to offer our guests a 15% discount on lift and tubing tickets! You don’t need a code or a coupon, simply call Mount Ski Gull and mention your stay at Gull Lake Beach Resorts to purchase the discounted tickets. This special offer extends all the way through the current ski season.

A winter fun fixture since the 1980s, Mount Ski Gull hosts equal opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, and tubing across terrain that’s meticulously maintained. Varying degrees of slopes make this a destination that’s well suited to outdoor adventurers of all ages and abilities. Mount Ski Gull boasts exceptional evening lighting for maximizing your time on the slopes, while high-speed rope tows make it easy to save your energy.
