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

This was our first visit to Red Wing and Welch Village. It was midweek and we thought the prices were reasonable purchasing lift tickets online ahead of time. Unfortunately, not all areas are open during the week but the lack of crowds made up for...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

Welch Village is in a beautiful part of MN and the ski runs offer something for everyone! We had our 2 daughters with us who were skiing for the 1st time (ages 9 & 10). They took the 2-hour lesson in the morning and then...More
