2011 Resort Poll: Top Three Midwest Parks

2. Hyland Hills, Minnesota

Just outside Minneapolis (roughly five minutes from The Mall of America), Hyland Hills is the skatepark-on-snow home to the truest of Midwest dirts. Local heroes Zac Marben, Jake Olson-Elm, and more of Minnesota’s best all hail from the 175-foot vertical mega-lapper, where you can realistically get 50-plus runs a day. Two rope tows keep the vibe flowing, with a park staff committed to keeping things fresh and new. Midwest, represent.
