This information has been gathered from various sources such as brochures from the ski areas themselves or newspaper stories. I have not skied every location here, only Afton Alps, Trollhaugen, Wild Mountain, Buck Hill, Spirit Mountain and Lutsen. Some may find it humorous that we downhill ski in the plains state of Minnesota. For serious sking, Lutsen is the best there is around here (but is 250 miles -- straight north -- from the Twin Cities).
