Full review

Hyland is a SMALL ski area with SHORT runs, BORING terrain, and just about every other problem imaginable. It is packed full of beginners and little kids on field trips. Hyland also has a large terrain park which is a negative for me because it attracts tons of rude teenage snowboarders who leave their energy drink cans all over the place and cuss everybody out. Why does my ski team have to meet here at this bunny hill? My advice to you: Take a longer drive, spend some more money, and visit Afton or Welch. Those are the best alternatives in the St Paul area. If you can, go to Lutsen or Giants Ridge and SKIP HYLAND AT ALL COSTS!!!!
