MOUNT KATO IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! you have got to try it out. if you go try the french fries they are probably the best in minnesota. decent runs, good snow board trail,lessons are good,their fake snow is good on ocasion but can be like ice if it melts than frezes agin.(it will kill you skiies :( over all i give it a 9.5 trails 8 snow board place 10. it is not good enough to come from northern minn but if you are ever near mankato try it out.
