Come witness what a difference $10 million makes at Minnesota’s Afton Alps, which opened on Nov. 23. New snowmaking twice as efficient and a redesigned terrain park designed by the builder of Winter X Games courses is served by two more rope tows and its own base village, a new electronic lift ticket system that makes getting you on the slopes faster and easier. In the updated skier services center, there are renovated dining areas and menus.
