Minnesota may not be a state known for rugged and rocky mountains, but there are still a few choice spots where downhill enthusiasts can thrive. Skiers and snowboarders alike will enjoy hitting the slopes at Afton Alps and Buck Hill if they are looking to stay closer to the metro area. However, some of the best downhill action in the state can be found in northern Minnesota. Here you can test your skills at Giants Ridge Ski Resort, Lutsen Mountains, or Spirit Mountain.
