Welch and Afton are garbage. Need to hit Trollhaugen and Hyland, those sound like decent local places to Twin Cities (but pricier).
I don't understand why people claim Welch and Afton are garbage. I'm not a park rider, but have been to many hills, and so far as the runs go (non park) they are top notch in the area, buck is good for learning how to go downhill, but otherwise not much there. I learned at Trollhaugen, haven't been back, heard the park is good, but again, thats not what I'm into yet.
