The Midwest’s winter ski season has commenced.  Wild Mountain in Taylor’s Falls, Minn. filled a single run top to bottom with snow and a few features!  The hill was open today (10/29/10) from noon-5 p.m. for a decent-sized crowd of ski and snowboard enthusiasts.  Cars began arriving two hours prior to the hill’s opening in anticipation of the season’s first turns.  Snow making at Wild Mountain will not continue tonight but according to their Facebook page they “will be watching, waiting and ready whenever it does get cold.”

Six minutes down the road and across state lines in nearby Dresser, Wis., Trollhaugen also opened one run for the first time this season.  The run held two features and was open  from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Other Minnesota and Wisconsin hills in the area plan to open in mid to late November.
