Best terrain for skiing, best lifts, best grooming, and the best food. Unfortunately all of the ski areas in Midwest suffer from dated chalets. The food prices have gone up here over the past few years, but are still much less than Afton Alps, but...More

Overall this is a good place to ski located relatively close (hour to 45 minute drive) to the Twin Cities. All the people here were very friendly from the ticket seller to the guys in the rental shop to the lift operators. The ski slopes...More

So it's not Mammoth Lakes. These are the prairies but this ridge along the Cannon provides remarkably good skiing. Short runs but many of them and all provide a different challenge. The lodge it fine, the staff welcoming, and the skiing is fine -- even...More
