    Basically Afton, Welch and Spirit are the only other good Minnesota ski areas

      Peter should also get Buck Hill.

      Out of the places i have been to I can definitely confirm that.

      Everything except Afton is a one and done. And even then afton still just feels like a small hill with puny vertical but just really wide with a million double chairs which half of time are not even spinning. (Half of the mountain was closed when i went, Might have been cause i visited on a weekday though.) Welch on the other hand has a bit more variety with it’s trails, with nice lifts, a whole advanced back bowl section, as well as valleys and a nicer variety of trails make that mountain feel a bit more than just a hill even with the low vertical. Haven’t skied spirit but judging by visiting their bike park it seems like a good mountain.

    It amazes me just how many small ski areas there are in the Midwest, despite the lack of vertical feet.

    Peter. Can you please add Welch Valley? I can’t find any info or photos about the lifts anywhere. Thank you

      Welch Village? On the list along with Buena Vista, Andes Tower Hills and Mt. Itasca.

        Yeah. That’s what I meant.

        When do you think you can have pics up?


        • Peter Landsman January 19, 2021 / 2:53 pm

          When I am able to make it there. I have added 18 resorts in the past 6 days. This is not my full time job.

      Thanks for letting me know about this Randy. I was able to adjust my plans and get Steeplechase pictures today. Great little mountain!
