Welch maybe doesn't have the best terrain park in the area, but it has 100 times better terrain for Skiing and Snowboarding. The most challenging runs at other areas (based on Fall Line and Grade) are not as challenging as many of Welch's Blue runs, and it's signature hill Look Out. The Best Chair Lifts in the area.

What a quiet small town!. Beautiful part of the state of MN. Nice river and surrounding bluff landscape. Not a huge hill, but perfect for a morning or afternoon family getaway on the downhill slopes. Two ski chalets and nice eastside outdoor bbq/grill for winter cookout! Hit the slopes in the morning for the best snow conditions!

The management at welch is the worst I've ever seen, they do not and will not cater to the future of the snow sports. Their terrain park is the worst DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. It is also very expensive.

I learned how to snowboard at Welch by taking a private lesson and it was the best money I ever spent. I spent as much time there as possible on the weekends and had a great time. There are tons of hills for all types of skiers/snowboarders of all levels.

Good ski resort. There are a lot of different slopes to try so there isn't much of a wait during high season. Slopes are maintained okay, not the best, but having several slopes to try helps....

The chair lifts will take up the majority of your time which is fine but the price isn't much cheaper than a real ski area. Drop the price or increase the benefits of going.

This place is great. Took the Boy Scouts there for the 3 day weekend. Plenty of runs for all abilities. Stayed in the cabins...like a ski in/ ski out from out West without the 12 hour drive!

The selection of hills was good and it is very easy to access. I thought it was reasonably priced too.
