Thanks for a great season! See you at the Adventure Park!

Expansion Project

Chairlift Expansion!

Recently there has been a spark of interest in snowsports and outdoor winter recreation like we’ve never seen in our 70 year history. Quite frankly, we are just as much grateful as we are blown away by your enthusiasm to get on snow!


Our mission has always been to continuously reinvest in your experience while remaining true to the Mom & Pop Midwest Ski Area vibe that makes Trollhaugen feel like home to so many of you. To make the most of this unprecedented season, we have embarked on a 3-Phase, multi year Terrain Expansion project to better service our skiers and snowboarders of every ability level!


Kicking things off, we replaced our double chairlift with a brand new variable speed 4-Person Chairlift, providing another way for skiers and snowboarders of ALL abilities to get on the slopes!


Read all about our plans to grow our lifts, trails, and snowmaking operations. Because after all, if you want snow…#GOTROLL and #GROWTROLL!
