Also for your safety, we’ll be wearing masks in the office for as long as the State of Minnesota continues to require it inside public buildings. And for our staff’s safety, we ask that you wear masks when inside the building and when 6 feet of social distance cannot be observed when outside the building. - Release of liability agreement forms must be signed electronically before arrival. We ask that as our guest, you take responsibility for your own health and the health of those around you. If you are sick or experiencing any cold/flu related symptoms/illness please stay home.

If renting helmets, we mandate that you have a Balaclava on prior to trying on helmets. We also ask that you arrive dressed for your reservation.
