On a recent mild day, Sam Kluver sat on a snow bank at Spirit Mountain, video camera ready to catch the action as a friend came snowboarding down the Amp Energy Terrain Park.


"It's probably the best one I've been to in Minnesota," Kluver said of the park. "It's actually got decent-sized jumps."

Kluver comes to Duluth several times each winter from Eagan, Minn., to board at Spirit Mountain.

"It's worth the trip," he said.
