Well, it looks like the snowboard trip is back on! We are headed to Welch Village in southern Minnesota for a Saturday and Sunday snowboard extravaganza! It is going to be awesome. We hope! It is only seven hours away, cheap lift tickets, and should provide more trails than we have ever seen at a resort. For the distance and the price it looks like a great deal. Plans are still in the works but I think that the trip is a go. Welch Village looks like a really nice place. On their website they even have a webcam you can operate remotely. It gives a pretty good idea of what we are in for.
Considering what we are used to, I think that this is going to be a great experience for all of us! I am not sure I can talk Jessie into coming with us but if she does, it should provide plenty of beginner friendly snow to play in!
The hotel isn't anything special but it is a warm place to wax your snowboard after a great day on the slopes!
