Back in my days of skiing at Holiday Mountain in Estherville, my instructors were huge fans of Trollhaugen. They waxed poetic about the great skiing, but I suspect it was the Wisconsin bar and buddy trip options that made their adventures worthwhile. I finally went up myself one weekend and had a nice ski day with friends. However, at this time when the drinking age was 18 (!), our apres ski options were limited.
Trollhaugen has been around since 1951 and features 22 runs (with 10 lifts on 80 acres of skiable terrain) and a 260 vertical drop. The longest run is 2500 feet and night skiing is available every Friday night until 3 AM! The chalet lodge is old, original, homey, and very Midwest.
