Whether you are a skiing pro or a newbie, there’s a ski area for you near us. Buck Hill, Hyland Hills, Afton Alps, Welch Village, and Wild Mountain are all within about a 30-60 minute drive and are a great day trip from Roseville! (You can also snowboard at any of these and snow tube at Buck Hill and Wild Mountain.) For those looking to learn or perfect skiing skills before hitting the slopes a visit to The Alpine Factory is what you need. They offer indoor ski and snowboard lessons on their revolving infinite slopes, the first of their kind in Minnesota. The speed and slope of each “hill” is adjustable, making it perfect for skiers of all levels!
