Membership Privileges

As a Member of The Residence Club at Giants Ridge, you're entitled to all the privileges of this unique four-season area. You're encouraged to bring all your toys…boats, skis, snowmobiles, four wheelers, bikes, whatever. After all this is your second home, and we encourage your full use of all that the area has to offer. Want to try something new? The on-site, Giants Ridge Rental Shop has it all.

Golf — Can you say "world-class"? As a Member of The Residence Club, you and your family are entitled to discounted green fees, preferred tee times, full use of the practice facilities and much more, at two of Minnesota's (and the nation's, according to "Golf Digest Magazine") premier golf courses.

Boating/Fishing — Dock your own boat or your rental at the Club's private, on-site boat docks. The nearby public boat launch and trailer storage area make access to Sabin Lake a breeze. A short walk down the path to the beach and marina and you're ready for that day on the water.

Skiing / Snowboarding — Whether you like the solitude of cross country skiing or the thrill and exhilaration of downhill skiing or boarding, you'll have the world of adventure literally at your doorstep, with discounted passes to boot. Just across the road, the Giants Ridge alpine slopes, cross country trails and terrain park are acknowledged as the best in the State.

Snowmobiling — The Biwabik area and the Iron Range are truly a snow-mobiler's paradise. Hundreds of miles of trails criss cross over hills and through hardwood and pine forests meandering over lakes and past quaint bars and restaurants.

Hiking — Throughout the region you'll find breathtaking hiking including the beginning of the Superior Trail. Plus your just a short drive from Lake Superior's North Shore where dozens of inspiring day hikes await.

Biking — The area is ripe with fantastic biking opportunities for novice and expert alike. Whether you're a road biker or prefer single-track trails, we'll help you find a route that will test your skill level and thrill your senses. The Mesabi Trail, with 132 miles of paved biking trails, passes right through the Giants Ridge Recreation Area.

Spa Services — Relax and unwind, after a busy day, at the Aveda Concept, La Ridge Spa and Salon, featuring a variety of massage and stone therapy treatments plus a full salon.

Dining — Enjoy casual dinners and drinks (everything is casual!) on site at the Lodge or the Wacouta Grill or discover the local flavor just minutes from your home in Biwabik and across the Iron Range.
