what's the best park near Minneapolis?

Which of the hills by Minneapolis have the best park features?

Anyone have more details about the new Afton Alps park, beyond what's on the website?

Will anything be open the week after Thanksgiving?

Troll's going to be open. Wild Mountain should be open. Welch might be open. I'm not even sure if Afton has STARTED making snow yet, since they seem to have gotten rid of their hill cams. The only thing I've seen on Afton's park is the same cgi they've put on the webpage, facebook and everywhere else. I rode troll last sunday, it was fun, but only because it's early november, lol.

edit: To answer your first question, Troll seems to be universally considered to be the best park near the twin cities.

Oh and if you're in town on the weekend, they start their late night Fridays, with shredding and live music and cheap beer til 3am on the 29th, and I think every Friday for the rest of the season.
