For 55 years, Afton Alps has delighted the Twin Cities’ families as one of the Midwest’s premier winter destinations. Nestled in scenic St. Croix River Valley just outside Minneapolis and St. Paul, this sprawling resort poured $10 million the fall of 2013 into re-imagining the guest experience with the base area facilities, a powerful state-of-the-art snowmaking system and a cutting edge terrain park.

With nearly 300 skiable acres, there is enough terrain to challenge experts to beginners, day or night. Opening along the bluffs of the St. Croix River on December 21, 1963, the resort began to grow rapidly in the 1970’s with more chairlifts, new trails and a very dedicated ski school staff. Progress continued over the next few decades with the birth of snowboarding, the addition of terrain parks and fully-lit slopes, and the installation of an 18-hole golf course. This beautiful golf course, with scenic views and an abundance of wildlife will make your golf experience unlike any other.

Now with 50 runs, 18 lifts, five chalets and the Midwest’s most acclaimed ski and ride school, Afton Alps is a leader in the industry.

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.
