Our terrain park is full of progressive and innovative features and we are known for some of the best snowmaking and grooming in the Midwest.

This place is a gem! A gem in terms of accessibility, amenities, snow making equipment, people working there. It's a family oriented place. My daughter learned to ski here. We go there often during winter, especially after a nice snow storm passed through the Twin Cities. The ski school there is one of the finest. The terrain is PERFECT for learning how to ski and building on skills later. And it's located in one of the most beautiful natural surroundings in the cities. We love Hyland. A perfect example of what a well funded public park system can create and maintain. We love the Twin Cities (Minnesota). A place we call home now and a perfect example of a culture that cares about the outdoors.

A fun place to ski but it is lacking in a few aspects. They need staff to help organize patrons for getting onto the lifts, you have 5 different lines to get on the lift depending on which side you came from. 2 single lines 2 double lines and a lessons line. People enter the lines and just kind of go when they think it's their turn. Be aggressive and ask to ride up with strangers: many go up 2 at a time when the lift can support 3 or 4 people. The hills are pretty small, going without turning or stopping I was done in what felt like a few seconds. Even the black diamond is just a steep small hill, nothing too crazy. The snow was well maintained and the present staff were kind and helpful. I'd recommend coming here for a good close small hill. They also offer shuttles to the ski hills from the parking lot. The picture is from the black diamond hill on the southern side. A lovely view of the city and Minneapolis in the distance.

Great spot for the kiddos to take lessons. Staff is super friendly and the kids love learning here. The chalet is really great too. I have only seen it super super busy here once and that was because it was the first Sunday that was over 30 degrees after a three week streak of subzero temps.

Good little ski hill for cheap. My only complaint is the rude staff. It was our group's first time to Hyland and the hills close at 9. However, the lifts were still running at 9:10. We get inside and are taking our gear off and a young lady staff member comes up to us and lectures us about how 15 minutes is enough time to get out of there. It's not like we were sitting around, we were putting our gear away. then she said a very rude comment under her breath. Other than that, I enjoyed myself. But maybe the staff should be more understanding - plenty f businesses don't b**** out their customers after closing; it could have at least been a polite request.
