Epic has just about completed the makeover of this venerable Minnesota gem. The food is uniformly outstanding, the snow is groomed and abetted as well as it possibly can be, the staff are flippin' heroes, the access is fantastic. If you haven't been recently, please...More

We had a super day at Afton Alps. Ski Instructors were nice and very helpful. The weather was perfect; there was fresh snow on the ground. Everything about the day was fun and enjoyable.

Went skiing on New years eve. The layout of the chalet is very odd. Everything is separate and there is no where to get ready if you have your own gear, except in your car. The runs where good, nice an groomed. Very icy in...More

Thanks for reaching out, Diane. We do not have lift access in the summer, but we do have a beautiful golf and footgolf course to enjoy.
