This resort is the main skiing destination of Milwaukee residents. It is not large. The verticle is like 210' and the longest run is about 1/4 mile. The runs that they do have are relatively good, and are treated great. Because it is so small, they can afford excellent snowmaking and grooming. the chairlifts are slow, double lifts, that have extremely long lines on the weekends. the terrain parks are good, and they have tubing too. Very overpriced lift ticket and food. Still fun. If you live in Milwaukee, the better choice is Alpine Valley. there is better snow, longer runs, cheaper and better food, better lifts, and the lift ticket is only $3 more...
