For more than fifty years, Afton Alps has been a family hot spot for fun. Even when spring comes along, the winter fun continues. Afton Alps can make snow incredibly fast. The team has made some major improvements in recent years. It added twenty two energy efficient snowmaking guns and fifty low energy tower snow guns back in 2013. When the temperatures permit, they can pump water twice as fast with their new snowmaking pump house, too. All the changes were part of a ten million dollar improvement. Afton Alps has some three hundred skiable acres, forty eight trails and eighteen lifts. They also have four terrain parks. Afton Alps welcomes beginners and advanced skiers. They even offer a ski school for people who want to learn or brush up on their skills. Afton Alps is offering a deal for Twin Cities Live fans.
