    Lift Tickets & Season Passes:

    Lift Tickets: Must be purchased online in advance. We will not be selling any lift tickets in-person at the window.

    Season Passes: Must be purchased online. All season pass holder are required to present their season pass card every time they wish to ski/ride at our outdoor ticket widows at the main chalet or at Madd Jaxx during operating hours and obtain/wear a lift ticket. On weekends & holidays, we usually have a ticket window reserved for only season pass holders.

    Our members usually begin to arrive at 9:00 and continue throughout the day. Watch for our yellow bandanas, pole flags and arm/leg and helmet bands.

    As usual, the SkiHawks will tend to congregate at Jaxx Bar & Grill. Jaxx will only be open to limited capacity. Indoor dining will be available at Jaxx on a limited basis.

    Firepits are scattered in front and alongside of Jaxx and the main chalet for warm up.

    A number of SkiHawks will be gathering by the fire pits near Madd Jaxx at 11:00 and through out the day. Stop by to say hello (Look for yellow).

    Be sure to dress appropriate, as warm up sites are limited.

    From the Welch Website:

    Indoor Chalet Policies:

    We are expecting a more "normal" operating season in 2021-2022 relating to our indoor chalet spaces. However, please read the following policies before you visit Welch Village this season. These policies are meant to create a positive and enjoyable experience for ALL of our guests.

    All items such as bags, shoes/boots, coolers, and containers are not allowed in the chalet while you are skiing/riding at Welch Village. All personal items must be stored in a seasonal locker, daily paid locker, or in a cubby area. If lockers and/or cubby areas are full, all personal items must be kept in your vehicle.

    Carry-on food is not allowed on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and during *holiday hours.

    There is a 30 minute time limit per table on weekends and during holiday hours to ensure that all guests are given a chance to use our seating & tables.

    No carry-on alcoholic beverages are permitted anywhere on Welch Village property as per MN Statue 340A.512. This includes all parking areas and on all WV property.

    Guests are not required to wear face coverings inside the chalet if they are vaccinated. All guests who are under the age of 12 and unvaccinated guests are highly encouraged to wear a face covering per current CDC recommendations.

    Bring your on-line or prepaid voucher to the outside ticket window at the main chalet where it will be exchanged for a lift ticket. Once you have your lift ticket you can drive to the Jaxx Bar & Grill area where we tend to hang.

    Pass holders can still have their passes scanned at Jaxx.

    • 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
    • Afton Alps

             SkiHawks Meet & Ski at Afton Alps
         

    The SkiHawks will be at Afton Alps on Sunday, January 16th for a Meet & Ski.

    Afton requires face masks indoors but not outdoors, and restaurant dining requires Covid vaccination and a reservation. Purchase your lift ticket online or at the ticket window after you arrive. Check out all the specifics and details at their website:

    https://www.aftonalps.com/explore-the-resort/about-the-resort/winter-experience.aspx

    Afton is committed to safety during this time and has made changes to accommodate this. Come at any time but lifts open at 9:30. If you're new to the club, it's easier to find people to ski with if you get there early. Meet at The Highland's Chalet at 10:00 on the outdoor patio slopeside (cannot meet as a group indoors). Because of limited access to indoor facilities, guests will not be able to leave property in lodges. You will need to keep your gear in your car, so park in the The Highlands (upper) lot. The Highlands Chalet is the first chalet and parking area you will see on your right after entering the resort after taking your first left at the State Park entrance. Here you can park, pick-up your ticket, grab lunch or a drink and hit the slopes. The only thing you can't do is get rental equipment.

    You are able to bring your own food into the lodge, if capacity allows, but everyone should be considerate of time and only use the table when actively dining. Grab and go food is available. There are also restaurants where you can book a mealtime, but you will need to do this on your own. Restaurants require proof of vaccination and face masks. There are very detailed specifics and requirements on the website.

    Covid 19 has also changed how Afton Alps will operate this season. Most importantly, lift tickets and rentals may be purchased online in advance. Tickets and reservations are limited. For information, directions and a trail map, link to the Afton Alps website above.
