Pros: Great snow and the people are fantastic.
Cons: The food needs a serious update.
“ Nubs has world class snowmaking and grooming. I've been to other resorts that are known for their grooming (Deer Valley, Park City, Beaver Creek, Vail, Bretton Woods etc.) and Nubs has consistently the best groomed snow of anywhere I've been. If you like groomers, Nubs is your place. That said, when there's a dump of fresh they'll leave some trails au natural, they've...” --Walt
“If you like to ski natural snow in a natural setting, Bohemia is for you. If you're looking for anything else - and I do mean anything - you won't find it here. No snowmaking, no grooming, two slow lifts (usually one is shut down or getting repaired - the place only really needs one lift and the bus anyway), no nightlife, no food, no park, no crowds, no ski school, no NASTAR, no base lodge, no...” --Jer
“It may not be the rockies, but it's the best you can find in Minnesota. No other resort within reasonable driving distance even comes close. It's about 3.5-4 hours drive from the Twin Cities. The only thing that might be better is upper peninsula, but then you're talking 7-8 hours from the cities. Lutsen brings a big resort feel to the midwest with 4 mountains. Moose mountain serves up to...” --majortato
“ I list Caberfae as my home area even though it is 2 1/2 hours from me and there are closer ski areas. I have been skiing it for over 20 years and never get tired of it. It has some nice beginner runs that go through forested areas, but the north and south peaks are the jewel of the resort. The runs off of the peaks are somewhat challenging and somewhat long ( for midwestern...” --Bullcan
“ Marquette mountain and Porcupine Mountain in the UP are the best accessible skiing west of Lake Michigan until you start to hit the Rockies. The lake effect snow means that you almost always have good, deep, natural snow. The views of Lake Superior are glorious. This is a skiers mountain with thrilling trails that will excite good skiers. In...” --BigSki
“ Chestnut counts as home, I've skied here for a long time. The area is one of the most scenic that I've enjoyed, with the Mississippi at the base. The conditions are good due to extensive snowmaking and an ample water supply (did I mention the Mississippi at the base!) The terrain has plenty to offer for a Midwest resort, the down side is that the runs are short. ...” --don_weber
“Schuss Mountain is a top ten Michigan ski area. The five main lifts have a good combination of all ski run types with good run length. Lifts are fixed a little slow but have short lines. There are taller and bigger ski areas in Michigan but Schuss isn’t that far off. ” --nathanvg
“ We feel fortunate to have this solid hill in our backyard. We've skied in the Michigan UP, Wisconsin, Lutsen and out west. However like many other ski areas, we have felt for some time that the vertical feet they claim is exaggerated. We have been season pass holders for years. We feel the season passes are a great value, best in the area. However in recent years after...” --LewINDuluth2
“ I'm a ski patroller at devil's head, which means that I'm biased towards because I feel a lot of affection for the hill, and biased against it because after skiing 10+ hours a week there for 6 years, I'm a bit tired of it too. That said, it's a good hill as far as midwest skiing. They work really hard to make a lot of snow (and usually do quite well), they groom very well,...” --bashfulbird
“ Wow! where do I start with this dumb place. Badly goomed trails. Icy! Icy! Icy! WAY over priced for what you get. Terrain park....who the build a terrian park on flat ground with no speed to hit it? Why? dumb park crew is all I have to say. Nothing nice to say about this place. Went to the bar and waited for a long time for the bartender to service me. Why? cause he's busy talkin' to another...” --shaun vaj
