About The Hill

Coffee Mill, named after a historic navigational point along the mighty Mississippi, offers the best of coulee skiing with a unique "bowl" arrangement for convenient lift accessibility and protection from cold winter winds. Extra long slopes combined with high capacity chairs provide a skiing experience second to none. From the gentle slopes of Chippewa to the radical pitch of O'Chute, each run is obscured from the next by an abundant growth of birch, oaks, and pines. Modern snowmaking and daily grooming insure great snow throughout the season. The majestic area offers fantastic views of river valleys and two states with unparalleled beauty.

Coffee Mill Developmental Ski Team

Have fun while learning to ski like a pro!

The Coffee Mill Ski Team is for students ages 5 through high school. The only requirement is that the skier can ski intermediate (blue) runs and ride the lift without assistance.

The race program takes skiers from their current ability level and develops them with their ability to be better skiers. The season begins with work on basic ski skills and control in varying conditions. These skills are then put to work on the race course for fun, improvement and the thrill of competition.

Coffee Mill Ski Team Goals
  • Learn to ski safely
  • Have fun while learning
  • Learn the sport of racing
  • Ski better
  • Have fun competing

Practices are held on Saturdays beginning at approximately noon and ending around 3:30 PM. Practice dates will be announced as soon as the Coffee Mill Ski Hill is open for the season.

  • $110 first skier
  • $100 second skier
  • $90 third skier
  • (Fees do not include lift tickets or equipment)

For additional information, please contact Tracy Nielsen, Team Administrator by phone 507-767-2214, or by email

The team is led by Head Coach Dave McLeod.
