Hit the slopes at Afton Alps

This winter has been a great one for snow lovers. If you have Monday off, it'll be a great day to ski.

HASTINGS, Minn. — For 56 years, Afton Alps has prided themselves as one of the Midwest’s premier winter destinations. 

Nestled in the scenic St. Croix River Valley just outside Minneapolis and St. Paul, the organization says it has poured $10 million into re-imagining the guest experience with base area facilities, a powerful state-of-the-art snow-making system and a cutting-edge terrain park - since the fall of 2013. 

The business says with nearly 300 ski-able acres, there is enough terrain to challenge experts to beginners, day or night. 

"Accessible, affordable and fun, this big-time resort with a small-town feel has converted thousands of first-timers into lifelong skiers and riders, and now with the opportunity to take that passion to Vail Resorts’ iconic western mountains, Afton Alps is truly the place where Epic begins," says the company.
