Welch Village


Located in southeastern Minnesota along the Cannon River and just 15 minutes from the Mississippi and its beautiful river bluffs, Welch Village Resort draws largely on the metropolitan populations of Minneapolis/St. Paul to the north and Rochester to the south. Much of this population is only 45 minutes away. Other than locals, guests also come from the Des Moines, IA, Madison, WI, Sioux Falls, SD, and Fargo, ND.

Beginning with 6 runs, a T-bar and rope tow in 1965, Welch Village has expanded to 50 runs on three mountains and eight chairlifts; 3 quads, 1 triple, and 4 doubles, a handle tow and Magic Carpet lift.



Sunshine Village

Sunshine Village, with the longest ski season in the region, has long been known for its winding gondola ride that carries you almost 1,650 vertical feet from the parking lot-along the walls of a valley and box canyon-to the village base area and the rest of the lifts.
