Ok, this is a picture of the resort we stayed at just before Christmas. All seven of us spent 3 nights, 4 days in this beautiful place called Maplelag in Northern Minnesota. I couldn't rave enough about the hot tub, sauna, the FOOD and the perfectly groomed ski trails. Oh, not the mention I was afraid my husband would move into the steam room "I'll never be the same!" If you're looking for a wonderful yet very affordable vacation - consider this place. You will NOT regret it. All the kids loved every minute and didn't want to leave. The rental equipment is very high quality, my feet didn't get the least bit cold or wet. You can ski right from your cabin door and no worries about the wind or cold as all the trails are surrounded by the trees. We ever got up early one morning and skiied in the dark - breathtaking!
I'm super busy at work, will try to post some "real" stuff soon!
