Downhill Skiing

Best in the Midwest

Minnesota’s slopes offer affordable, award-winning adventure close to home for Midwestern skiers and snowboarders.

Whether you prefer fast technical lines or long cruising runs, Minnesota's downhill ski areas offer an impressive mix of terrain unlike anything else in the Midwest. 

Slopes Across The State

For skiers seeking the Midwest's biggest and best ski runs, the North Shore’s Sawtooth Mountains offer spectacular drops with a bonus of dark green forests and Lake Superior’s steely winter blues as the backdrop. In the northwest, the newest ski destination in Minnesota, Detroit Mountain, is complete with a lodge and 15 runs. Twin Cities area visitors will find an array of excellent downhill areas. Afton Alps in Hastings has steadily targeted young snowboarders and expanded under ownership by Vail Resorts.
