  • I had a great ski experience here. The ski area is much larger than I expected, and I enjoyed weaving my way through the trails. The food at the club house was good. The lift ticket and rental prices were fair. The night skiing was fun as well. So long as you temper your expectations, you won't be's a 300 foot vertical drop from the top of a hill, not a mountain in the Colorado Rockies.
  • I've skied here for over 40 years. For this part of Minnesota the terrain can't be beat. Plenty of fun blue runs and back diamonds. Unfortunately, the more challenging runs are rarely available to free skiers in the weekend as they are give over totally to the racing program. 😞 Lift prices are reasonable, but food prices are stratospheric since the area was purchased by Vail. If, like me, you choose to buy a season pass, you'll want to bring your own food. The restrooms are rarely serviced often enough for the rough use they get. Still, I'm already looking forward to my first day on the snow next season.
  • Friendly. A decent variety of ski runs for MN. The food in the cafeteria was OK. The people serving in the cafeteria did did not really know what the specials were.
  • I had an issue with the Explorers package for my kids, but the staff including the General Manager Joe were very helpful and solved it promptly. Great place to sky in the Twin Cities.
  • Great ski area and professionally managed. They also have wonderful kids programs and ski school.
