Are you an Olympic-level skier or snowboarder? Never been on a slope in your life? Want your kids you learn as soon as they can? No matter what, you need look no further than Welch Village, Southern MN Scene’s 2018 winner for Best Ski Slope.
Welch Village is actual two hills—East and West—with a multitude of slopes ranging from easy to double-black diamond difficult, so there’s something for skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels. Featuring a vertical rise of 360 feet from the valley floor to the summit, this premier ski area has plenty of challenges and thrills in its 60 runs.
If you’re new to skiing and snowboarding, Welch Village offers affordable equipment rentals and lessons for both adults and children. They also offer multi-day ski programs for kids looking to get more serious about skiing.
Not interested in getting cold? In the summer months some of Welch Village’s slopes turn into mountain biking trails as well.
