Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Detroit Mountain Recreation Area outside of Detroit Lakes is on track to open next year.

Supporters have donated 750 thousand dollars since July.

The Detroit Mountain Recreation Area board of directors will continue to fundraising until it meets

its goal of one million dollars, which is the amount needed for construction to begin this fall.

Overall, five-and-a-half million dollars have been pledged. The total cost of the project is seven million dollars.

They hope to open for skiing next winter.

Organizers are planning to include a lodge, lift and snow-making equipment, and add mountain biking trails in the summer of 2015.
