Welch is decent. Nothing in the metro is really going to compare to Afton though, and if you're making more than one trip up, their new "loyalty program" or whatever they call it is great. You sign up, and you get 10% off your ticket, and then on your next trips you get $10 off that rate. For example weekdays are $35, my first ticket was $32, and my second and all subsequent tickets will be $22 for a weekday. And I don't think anybody south of Duluth has a long run.
