Spring skiing in the U.P. is the best! Big Powderhorn Mountain served up a snow on a platter! Snow was fast, the sun was warm and everyone was enjoying the 100% open ski terrain. I would recommend the ski school as my 5 year-old son loves his instructors and has made great advances this year in his skiing ability. The food at the Hideout is great and reasonable for any ski area, and the service is excellent as well.
If you are looking for a family friendly resort that is easy driving from Milwaukee or Chicago, Big Powderhorn is it.
