You win.Most of the ski areas in Minnesota should have seen their first light snow of the year today. Lutsen, Giants Ridge, and potentially Spirit stand a good chance of getting their first notable snowfalls of the year this weekend. I wouldn't be surprised if we see Wild or Troll turn their guns on overnight in the next week. Looking at the weather and knowing how they both really push to open early, it's possible they could push to have a rope tow open next weekend.
We're getting there!
We have basically the exact same plan. Throw in day trips for us to Powder Ridge, Buck Hill and Trollhaugen. Then we'll do some night skiing at Wild Mountain and Welch Villiage.We've bought indy passes this year and are looking forward to hitting some new places this year. Trips planned to lutsen/spirit and granite peak/big powderhorn.
Long drives from central iowa unfortunately!
