If you're up for the drive, Lutsen is the best in MN. Other than that, IMO Afton is the best within close proximity of Mpls.

I'm in Blaine, north of the cities. I have never been to Trollhaugen. Afton can get crowded, I typically stay on the back side & away from the terrain park/jumps. It's not too bad there.

Lutsen is the best, I like Giants Ridge too.

You might want to check out powder ridge in kimbal, I've never been there but some of my friends like it.
Wild mountian is fun for pre-season riding in November.
If your into park hyland and those other tow rope hills are hard to beat.
Other than that Afton is about the only metro hill that I like but I don't ride down there often.

Granite Peak is 4 hours to the East if you don't mind a drive.

Well worth it and the best that Wisconsin has.

Depends where you are in the cities, about an hour from most places I would guess.
