Cross-country ski pass changes

The Battle Creek Winter Recreation Area will be the first winter recreation area with machine made snow in the East Metro. It will provide access to recreation for the surrounding community and serve as a regional, statewide and national draw as a premier cross-country ski facility.

Construction is on track to be completed in November. Snowmaking will begin when temperatures dip below 27-degrees for an extended period, typically in December.

Starting with the 2022-2023 ski season, Ramsey County and Saint Paul will use a mutual Ramsey County/Saint Paul ski pass. Ramsey County will no longer accept the Great Minnesota Ski Pass. Passes may be purchased online now or in person at Tamarack Nature Center, Battle Creek Recreation Center and Como Regional Park starting Dec. 2, 2022.
