I was at afton alps twice this year. I thought it was quite fun minus the short runs. They had lots of neat park features and I loved the one terrain park where they had like 50 different rails in that small area. I will for sure visit it again next season. If ya got a weekend to kill Lutsen is pretty awesome for the midwest! I have my season pass at giants ridge and it's a pretty alright place also. I try to hit a few different Midwest hills every year. This year it was afton and Mt. Bohemia. I always go to spirit mountain and lutsen every year both very enjoyable Midwest resorts.
