We went skiing at Afton yesterday, a busy Saturday in February. The sun was out and crowds were beginning to build. The snow had been groomed and was in great condition in the morning, even in the Highlands (which melts first). Hill 7 (black diamond)...More

We had a nice day here. My only complaint is that there were so many people - so many people inside the chalet that we couldn't find a place to sit; so many people on the slopes that I had to be careful not to...More

Epic has just about completed the makeover of this venerable Minnesota gem. The food is uniformly outstanding, the snow is groomed and abetted as well as it possibly can be, the staff are flippin' heroes, the access is fantastic. If you haven't been recently, please...More

We had a super day at Afton Alps. Ski Instructors were nice and very helpful. The weather was perfect; there was fresh snow on the ground. Everything about the day was fun and enjoyable.

Went skiing on New years eve. The layout of the chalet is very odd. Everything is separate and there is no where to get ready if you have your own gear, except in your car. The runs where good, nice an groomed. Very icy in...More

1st off... Vail owns it. Literally in the suburbs of St Paul. The runs are short but well groomed. Folks running it are genuinely insistent on you having fun at their park and they will ask you every chance they get if you are getting...More

Afton Alps is a great place to ski but the customer service is below average. From the beginning--getting our ski tickets took forever and and the two people that helped us were incredibly rude even though the problem was on their end. They never apologized...More
