About the Alpine Factory

About Us

After skiing in similar facilities in the Netherlands, we knew we had to bring this experience back home. There are only a handful of indoor slopes in the U.S., and The Alpine Factory is first of its kind in Minnesota. We built this center so you can keep your sliding skills sharp year round and be in optimal shape when the snow hits the mountains. If you love skiing and snowboarding, you are going to love The Alpine Factory.

About Our Location

Our brand new facility is right off of Highway 694 and Lexington in Arden Hills right across from the Arden Hills water tower. This makes The Alpine Factory a convenient drive from most slope lovers in the metro area.

About Our Hours

Effective June 12th, we are open between:

Mondays-Saturdays: 9:00am-9:00pm

Sundays: 9:00am-6:00pm

We have special Summer programs for kids, teens and adults. To find out more, visit our Events page.

About Our Slopes

We have two indoor infinite revolving slopes at The Alpine Factory. Each slope is can fit up to 3 people at a time. Both the speed and the pitch of our slopes are adjustable, so you can ski or snowboard on the equivalent of the easiest bunny hill all the way up to a black diamond experience. The slopes have a mirror at the bottom so you can see your movements as you are sliding. For your safety, an instructor will be supervising you at all times and can adjust and stop the slopes as needed.
