Can the Pilot Handle These 4 Minnesota Slopes? | Luther Mankato Honda

Minnesota is a winter wonderland for skiing and snowboard enthusiasts. Those thrill seekers deserve a SUV that is more than capable of taking on snowy terrain and can haul their snow gear. 

Luther Mankato Honda, your dealership for the top Honda repair in Mankato, loves how the new 2016 Honda Pilot for sale in New Ulm more than meets our expectations of a durable SUV. Below, check out the reasons that we believe the Pilot for sale in New Ulm, is capable of tackling Minnesota’s top snowy slopes at our favorite ski resorts. 

Mount Kato
Just one mile south of Mankato in the valley that runs next to the Minnesota River, is Mount Kato. It is furnished with 19 trails and eight chairlifts that give you more than enough snowy territory to explore. Between ski runs, grub on some flame-grilled food and delicious beverages at The Lift Bar. 

Buck Hill
Buck Hill, located south of the Twin Cities in Burnsville, is the ideal place for those who live for winter sports. Catch major air on the Half Pipe, The Knob and Rail Yard runs. If you’re not into freestyle snowboarding, rent some tubes and slide down the steep tubing hills. 

Elm Creek Winter Recreation Area
If you have cabin fever, take a short drive north to Maple Grove’s Elm Creek Winter Recreation Area near the Three River Park District. Grab a tube and slide down the tubing hill. If you’re new to skiing, try the beginner slope or schedule a ski lesson. If snowboarding is your thing, the area features a fun terrain park. After a day of winter fun, stop by the lodge for food. 

Hyland Hill Ski Area
Take a short drive up to Bloomington, MN in the Three Rivers Park District to take on the best snowmaking and grooming in the Midwest. The area features a 1,000-acre park that includes lighted cross-country ski trails, snowshoe trails and a complex for Nordic ski jumping.
