Choose Wisconsin’s Cascade Mountain for your next ski trip, and if you stay nearby, you could be tagging more deals than just at the ski area.

Cascade, which celebrated its 50th last season, has partnered with resorts just up I-90/94 in the Wisconsin Dells to offer families and friends not only fun outdoors on its 36 trails and four terrain parks more than 460 feet of vertical, but at Dells resorts with indoor waterparks, too. Check out its website for those resorts.

Deals at the mountain include these:

Kids aged 12 and under ski or ride free when accompanied by a paid adult. That means, mom and dad, take the entire neighborhood if you want, pay for one adult ticket, and all those kids 12 and under ski or snowboard free. The resort hopes that at least some will rent to make up for its ticket shortfall binge.

Now also running at the resort, purchase a midweek or any one-day ticket season pass online for next year for $263, a $113 savings. Ski or ride unlimited visits the rest of this season until the resort’s projected closing of March 17, for just $212. If you ski or ride here five times on either deal, you’ve paid for it. Come here for nighttime skiing and a season pass also covering next winter is just $188. And, students, senior citizens and military get 15 percent off ticket prices. Buy your tickets online, and find even more savings. 

Cascade slopes and skiers and riders are this season feeling the benefit of a new “winch cat” groomer. It can anchor to a point uphill and push snow to the top where it’s needed most. While Cascade is enjoying great natural snowfall this year, it’s also increased its snowmaking capacity and has the state’s only automated, computerized snowmaking system.
