Frost Fire Ski and Snowboard Area

Frost Fire Park is a modest alpine ski area and chairlift access Mountain Bike Park in the midwestern United States, in the Pembina River Gorge of northeastern North Dakota. Located in eastern Cavalier County, it is 7 miles (11 km) west of Walhalla and six miles (10 km) south of the international border with Canada (Manitoba).

Started in 1976, Frost Fire Park has two chairlifts and a magic carpet, with 10 runs, ski rentals, day lodge, and the Wintersköl lounge. It has an outdoor theater which hosts several plays and musicals during the summer. An "upside-down" area, the parking lot and lodge are near the top of the ski runs.

After 40 years, Frost Fire Ski and Snowboard Area, was purchased by the Pembina Gorge Foundation, who partnered with the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department. The Foundation changed the name to "Frost Fire Park" since it will no longer be a single season venue. Plans are to open a Downhill Mountain Bike (MTB) Terrain Park, with 7 full downhill trails with varying degrees of difficulty in Spring of 2019. Frost Fire Park purchased a new quad-seat chair lift with 57 seats total, to replace the very old ski lift that has been out of order since 2015. [1]
