Chestnut Mountain, one of the older, grander ski resorts in the lower Midwest, gets high marks for after ski activities, scenery, and terrain park with Heartland skiers and riders.  Located along a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, the skiing and riding is first rate and scenic.  It's always reminded me of a miniature version of Mont-Sainte-Anne, the large Quebec ski resort that overlooks the St. Lawrence Seaway.
