Buena Vista Facts

Downhill Skiers, Snowboarders & Tubers will find Buena Vista to be the area's premier spot to enjoy their sport. Sitting astride the continental divide, there are 16 downhill runs, the longest 2,000 ft. boasting a 230 ft. drop. The ski area features 4 chairlifts, a beginners tow, and a three-story chalet with warming fireplace and cafe.

Buena Vista

Cross-Country Skiing is something at this high-country site, traversing ideal skiing terrain. Nine lakes and vast forest can be viewed in distant panoramas along Buena Vista's 25 km of trails. The landscape of Buena Vista is exceptionally scenic. The trails meander through forests of pine and hardwood, over rolling hills and skirt the shores of serene lakes. The Buena Vista Ski trails require the MN Ski Pass, not available at Buena Vista.
