Pros: 15 minutes from my house

Cons: Tiny

I'm not sure how to review a place like this. 1) We're in Minnesota, so we don't have mountains anyways, just hills. 2) This one is right in the Twin City metro area, where those hills are even smaller. That all said, it's a fine/fun place to get some runs in--especially for someone learning to snowboard like myself. If you play hooky from work and go during the day, it's empty. The "lodge" is nice and clean and modern. The workers seem nice.

Pros: Proximity to the Twin Cities

Cons: Small Area, Long Lift Lines, Very Short Runs

Don't waste your time nor your money
