There is good, varied terrain and pretty scenery available for the during-the-week skier. You don't have to go on the weekends to ski on enjoyable terrain, like at other local ski areas. Employees are friendly and the lift lines are short during the week, except...More

Best terrain for skiing, best lifts, best grooming, and the best food. Unfortunately all of the ski areas in Midwest suffer from dated chalets. The food prices have gone up here over the past few years, but are still much less than Afton Alps, but...More

This was our first visit to Welch Village. The temperatures were very cold (windchill with negative degrees). That being said, it was hard to do many runs for long without needing to warm up. The lodge I would consider mediocre. Food was available for purchase...More

So it's not Mammoth Lakes. These are the prairies but this ridge along the Cannon provides remarkably good skiing. Short runs but many of them and all provide a different challenge. The lodge it fine, the staff welcoming, and the skiing is fine -- even...More
