Winter has its high points. The top of a ski hill, for one… Join The Current as we Rock the Slopes at Afton Alps on Saturday, February 2. It’s a full day of winter fun the whole family can enjoy. Starting at 10 a.m., we’ll have all sorts of excitement for the kiddos with a Rock the Cradle pop-up event with Children’s Minnesota. We’ll have live music on the hill from Koo Koo Kanga Roo, fire performances from Celestial Circus Productions, an intro to Ski School and more. In the afternoon, it’s the grownups’ time to shine. Hear live music from The Bad Man and watch local brewers race for a tapline (and enjoy free samples). Plus MPR Members can enjoy $10 off lift tickets! (Just bring your Member Card or know your Member number to get the discount.)
