I have always liked Afton, but not loved it. It's big, but overall the runs are short. It takes quite a bit to get from one side to the other unless you like to skate across the flats. They have made some improvements, which is nice to see. I don't like bringing kids here as it's tough for them to get around as well. They are usally the last ones to close around here for the season, and one of the first to open. They will operate with minimal coverage, so give them a couple weeks to make snow before showing up with your new skis.
