Devil`s Head

“ 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

Cascade Mountain

Cascade Mountain

“Good beginner bunny slopes with the chair lifts and wider space. So beginners can actually learn to use the chair lift at once. I think only one Magic carpet is only about 25 ft long...only for little kids. Mixed of blue and green runs and very short. So watch out for the sudden steep areas. They also have snow tubing areas. Expensive food, everything starts to about five bucks per portion. So...” --saludares

Granite Peak

Granite Peak

“Granite Peak is an excellent midwest resort. Alot of different terrain to seek out. One of the few resorts in the midwest that your not bored by noon with. Quite a few run though there 72+ runs they advertise are misleading. They name the top part of run and the bottom part of the run. Reality more around 40 to 45 runs. They also have many tree gladed runs(about 7 to 8). Most tree runs are...” --skylolow

Ski Whitecap Mountain

Ski Whitecap Mountain

“Arguably, this is the best overall ski area in the whole Midwest.  Boyne has the best groomers, Lutsen the longest runs, Bohemia the steepest.  Whitecap isn’t the best at any one thing but is close to the best in each of these categories:   200” of snow means powder days are common Great natural beauty with runs winding through the woods and 3 individual peaks Steepest runs...” --nathanvg

Nordic Mountain

Nordic Mountain

“ This is a great local ski hill with enough vertical and runs to be  fun for a day without having to drive very far. Many groups come up from Chicago for the weekend because it is such a great value. The food upstairs in the bar is very good - try the Reuben with bar fries- and very reasonably priced. The cafeteria downstairs is kid food and will not break the bank.  Lodging is...” --mgrezmer

Alpine Valley Resort

Alpine Valley Resort

“AV is my home hill because of its proximity to Milwaukee. I gave it a rating relative to WI ski hills NOT to resorts outside of the Midwest. AV offers about 20 runs with 3 runs listed black at 20-22 degree pitch consistently from top to bottom. Everything else tapers off to a much more gentle pitch from there. It is MUCH MORE consistent pitch than both Cascade & Granite Peak offering a true...” --Spengail

Tyrol Basin

Tyrol Basin

“Since you can get am 8-hour lift ticket for as little as $15 on liftopia, Tyrol can be a very good bargain depending on what you're looking for. I have no interest in the terrain park, so there isn't a whole lot here to keep me entertained. A couple of the black diamonds (Twister, Yodeler) can be fun if there's no lift line and you can run laps.   I come to Tyrol when I'm skiing with my...” --aw82

Wilmot Mountain

Wilmot Mountain

“Wilmot is not huge by any standard, but there are enough lifts and runs to keep most people occupied happily. With several terrain parks and slopes from the bunny to "expert," this works especially well for family skiing. Spacious lodge with inexpensive food (or bring food from home) looks over much of the mountain. With snowmaking, Wilmot can be open even when nature doesn't provide. ” --KovasP

“Great getaway skiing and snowboarding winter sports while being near the Wisconsin Dells water parks. Good learning areas for snow sports like skiing, snowboarding, tubing while being in Wisconsin Dells waterparks. However, Very short runs, old chairlifts, mostly green runs only.         ” --saludares
