Afton Alps reviews
I'm just a kid and learned to ski this year. The lessons are fun if you get Jamie or Old Tom. They have really easy and really hard hills. Also, amazon jumps the highlands and meadows. Come Soon! more »
This is my favorite ski area in Minnesota, the hill is great. Since I’m an instructor (for skijammers not Afton) find that some of the hills are great for beginner skier more »
They have really improved the hill. There is a couple terrian parks scattered around with one large, dedicated area. The runs are a little short but you can enjoy many different runs. Chalet is spacious and welcoming. There's usually a couple wood fires outside that you can sit by.
Disc golf course is a mostly wide open and very well kept 18-hole course located on the back 9 of the golf course. Course can be difficult to navigate without map. Costs $8 but worth it.
