It's a nice place in the MN River Valley, very scenic. About 19 runs, 8 lifts, 3 terrain parks (easy/small, med & large/more difficult). Reasonable lift rates ($35ish), food prices & pro shop prices. The lone resort for a very large area south & west of Mankato relies heavily on groups (as they should), but that means alot of inexperienced people to look out (be cautious) for. But hey, we all start somewhere. Sioux Falls, SW MN & NE IA area skiers & boarders that want a day trip (3hrs one way from Sioux Falls) should consider Kato if a trip to the Black Hills seems a bit much in dollars and/or time. Mt. Kato also has bike trails in the summer. We has a great time when we took our mountainboards there last fall as well. The lifts wern't open, so we had to hike, but cool to see the resort so colorful, quiet & rode some trails you can't in the winter.
