Full review

I personally think this is one of the nicest resorts in Wisconsin. Just 45-50 minutes from Milwaukee, and a bit longer from Chicago, this hill offers a variety of skiing abilities. It features two high speed quad chairlifts, The Valley Flyer and the E-Z rider. These lifts make the lift ticket totally worth it. The terrain parks are great, and there are Many lifts, making the lines shorter. It is a very family friendly resort, and has a great rental facility and lodges. The food is relatively cheaper than nearby resorts. The only problem is the Chicago crowd. On a typical saturday, this place can get super crowded. the lift lines on the high speed chairs can get very frustrating. They have excellent snow making and grooming, and the best runs are right in the middle. I love skiing here, especially on a week night.
