“A total of 240 students from 18 high schools in Minnesota and Wisconsin are competing in the 38th annual Welch Village/Hastings H.S. Invitational Alpine Ski Meet on today, Friday, January, 18, 2013 at Welch Village. The conditions should be ideal for racing with our natural and manufactured snow base of two to six feet on the racing slopes, with very mild temps for this time of year. The racers are excited for the event which takes place on Lookout and Bakkelyka.
The invitational race has seen many U.S. Olympian competitors such as Cindy Nelson, Kristina Koznick and Tasha Nelson. It is a forerunner of the sectional and state championship races held in Minnesota in early February, and often foretells the top finishers in later races.”
Welch Village Ski resort is open for business. Combine that with a B&B getaway weekend for fun winter getaway. We are 15 minutes away from the slopes. Look forward to a huge breakfast that we offer and then hit the slopes for a day of skiing then back to the Quill and Quilt for a hot tub soak before going out to dinner. There is not a better way to beat the winter then at its own game.
