MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Hundreds of high school skiers were in Taylors Falls Friday for one of Minnesota’s biggest and most competitive downhill ski competitions — the Wild Mountain Invitational.

It’s a good, early test to see who will be contenders at the state meet in February.

With thirty schools involved, there’s the competition on the hill — and at the bottom of it.

While the kids compete for the best times, the dads compete for the best tailgate!

Minnetonka won the boys team title Friday, and Mankato West took home the girls’ crown.
