  1. Buck Hill, close to the Twin Cities, is the perfect place to ski and snowboard. Not only are you able to enjoy your favorite winter activities, but you also are able to enjoy the lovely scenery.

  2. Hyland Hills has impressive terrain for both the skiers and snow boarders in your family. An academy is located close by, which provides lessons and equipment.  Hyland Hills is a great place if you are looking to learn how to snowboard or ski.

  3. Lutsen Mountains boasts an impressive 95 runs over a total of 4 mountains. This expansive landscape is one of the best destinations in MN for winter recreation.

  4. Welch Village is only 40 minutes from the Twin Cities, so it is a fun and convenient option, especially if you are looking for an easy day trip.

  5. Spirit Mountain is, in fact, the largest terrain park in the Midwest. For this fact alone, visiting Spirit Mountain is at the top of our bucket list.

  6. Afton Alps is located in the stunning St. Croix River Valley, so it is quite the sight to see. It boasts 300 skiable acres, which makes it one of the best areas to both ski and snowboard.
