Its similar to Indianhead in terrain. In otherwords nothing real special. They use to cater to the snowboard side of things more then the other resorts under the old ownership, who knows now.
Whitecap I've found to have the most challenging terrain in that area.
Really want to have a blast. Forget Big Snow Country area and head to Houghton. Grab a room for a few nites(cheap) with some buddies and hit up Mt. Bohemia(about 30-40 min. drive from there) for a long weekend. It blows anything else away big time in the midwest.
To me coming from IL you pass alot of hills that aren't much different then Big Snow Country. Better snow generally in UP but overall terrain isn't really any better then Cascade, Devils Head, and Granite Peak. Mt Bohemia offeres terrain that none of the rest of them can even compare to.
