Cheap, family friendly, close to Mankato
Parks are terrible, no real vertical, no expert trails, chalet is dated.

Full review

While on the website it says that Mt Kato has 240 feet of vertical, I measured this myself using a GPS and discovered that there is only a little under 140 feet of vertical. Their trails are all intermediate, with a couple of expert chutes , making this a great spot for families. Their parks department is lacking at best. On their trail map four terrain parks are indicated, but it is rare to find more than two open at a time. The chalet is in poor shape. Food service is what you might expect for a midrange ski area, burners and fries and whatnot. Overall, a place to avoid if you’re looking for a ski destination, but a great place for families and beginners to learn.
