Ski Resorts in the Twin Cities
While Minnesota is know for it’s 10,000 lakes, it is also know for it’s winter weather. The winters can get pretty long, but there are many outdoor activities that can pass the time. One of my favorites is downhill skiing and snowboarding! There are many ski resorts in the Twin Cities metro area where one can have a great time! Here they are in alphabetical order.
For 52 years, Afton Alps has delighted the Twin Cities’ families as one of the Midwest’s premier winter destinations. Nestled in the scenic St. Croix River Valley just outside Minneapolis and St. Paul, this sprawling resort poured $10 million the fall of 2013 into re-imagining the guest experience with the base area facilities, a powerful state-of-the-art snowmaking system and a cutting edge terrain park.
With nearly 300 skiable acres, 48 trails, 18 lifts and four terrain parks, there is enough terrain to challenge experts to beginners, day or night.
