A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for 11 a.m. Other programs by the Zoo Education Department and the International Wolf Center in Ely will continue until 2 p.m.
And a friendly tip for the kids: Bring sleds and take advantage of the zoo's big sledding hill.

Duluth pajama warmer sales are heating up
An unexpected shout-out on the "Today" show resulted in brisk Christmas sales for a Duluth pajama-warming business.
NBC's morning news show told viewers that if sometimes "you put on your pajamas and they're cold ... we have the solution."
The solution is the Pajama Warmer.
Lance Reaser of Duluth invented it, but he had no idea "Today" mentioned it until the phones started ringing.
"There were eight screens full of orders and the phone started ringing and ringing and ringing and just one call after another," he told our pal LeAnn Wallace at the Northland's NewsCenter.
The electric pajama warming sacks are packaged by Pinewood Incorporated in Duluth, a vocational center for adults with developmental disabilities.
"We weren't really expecting it, so, yes, it was very busy," said Brooke Marple of Pinewood.
The Pajama Warmer also made MSNBC's list of "Ten Gadgets That Wage War on Winter."
