(Southerner!) Driving from Twin Cities to nearby Skiing?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to be in St. Paul on business next week and wanted to stay over an extra day to go snowboarding somewhere near the twin cities (anything is better than what we have in Atlanta...which is nothing...). I realize I'll have to rent a car and drive if I want to board so any thoughts on the following are greatly appreciated:
1. what is the easiest place to get to for someone that isn't a great driver to begin with, AND is not a good driver in winter conditions? (used to live in the NE but always used public transport. I can't drive on ice. At all.).

2. Any idea what the roads are like to nearby ski areas? if there is snow the night before, do I need to expect the roads to be icy? (if so, I'd have to scrap it - I can't drive in that.)

Thanks in advance!
