Welch Village is an American ski resort near Red Wing, Minnesota. It was built by Leigh Nelson in 1965 and has grown considerably since then. It has a vertical elevation of approximately 360 feet (110 m). Its traditional opening time is around the third Saturday in November. It allows both skiing and snowboarding. It is located near the Cannon River Valley. The area has slopes for beginners, intermediate and expert skiers or snowboarders.
Welch Village has a large chalet with two cafeteria-style restaurants. An adult chalet, Madd_Jaxx serves alcohol near the triple lift on the east side of the resort. Welch Village offers ski instruction.
It hosts the Welch Village Invitational, one of the US' largest High School Alpine Ski Meets.
Welch Village has nine chairlifts: four quad lifts, four double chairs and one triple chair. The area is lit for night skiing, with the exception of the terrain served by the triple chair and the new "Back Bowl".
In recent years, Welch has undergone a significant expansion, doubling its snow-making capacity and opening a new experts-only area served by a quad chairlift installed in the fall of 2008.
