Afton Alps, a ski area located about 25 minutes from the Twin Cities is often very busy for a Minnesota ski area. I do like the run variety though. My favorite area on the mountain is the Highlands area. It's perfect for Intermediate/Advanced skiers. Afton somewhat lacks an area for beginners. The lift tickets used to be very expensive, but after Vail Resorts purchased Afton the tickets are average priced. If you're in the Twin Cities and you ski check out Afton. I personally like it more than Buck Hill and Hyland Ski Area (the other 2 Twin Cities areas)
