Full review

I learned to ski here, and I have been skiing at this ski area since 1976,and I love every bit of it.I have seen this place go from one chalet and t-bars to what it is today.Afton is the best place for you to go skiing close to the twin cities.Plenty of acres and different runs for all levels of skiing.They have excellent rental equipment and deals for first time skiers.Take advantage of it..The chalets are top notch and you have 4 to choose from.Plenty of slope side parking,and plenty of chairlifts.Best time to go is during the day,Monday thru Friday,you will avoid all the race clinics and busloads of kids after school hours are over.Nice place to bring the grill if you want to cook out in the parking lot.
Lift tickets are cheaper than what you will pay to travel further for less skiable acreage.Go Afton,it's well worth it!
