Coming from central IA where would you guys recommend going, we did Afton several years ago but have never tried Welch Village. Would only go for one day probably drive up and back same day.
any thoughts appreciated
I ski and my 12 yrd old snowboards, he does not terrain but likes long runs
Afton is the best hill south of Duluth IMO. Welch is alright, the runs seem a little shorter than Afton, welch also has a few more flats to get stuck on also. It's probably the only other hill that would be worth the drive for you guys.
Depending on where your at in IA you may want to check out some of the Wisconsin hills also.
