whoever the H#$% (ha) thinks afton is the best thinkg they has ever seen needs to get out of MN. Or even to northern MN! Afton is one of the best that is close to the twin cities, but it is a bump compared to other resorts. If you get done with your run in under a minute, it is time to experience something new! Take a ski trip that takes you to the reasons for skiing, not packed trails with 500 runs, 536 chairs, and 74 ft. vert! All right sorry, Afton is my home hill. But I still call it a hill. If you can make a trip to the mounains and you will love skiing (or boarding) for the rest of your life!
