Overall I'd say Cascade is worth the price. Its what you would expect for the midwest. I'm from the Chicago Area and its worth the 3 hour drive. There is a nice assortment of runs for people of all skill levels. The lift lines are way too long and in odd locations. There is only one high speed lift and the others take way too long to get to the top. There is a nice Bar/Restaurant at the top of the hill. There are plenty of decently long green and blue trails but the blacks are all way too short and take just 30 seconds at most from top to bottom. Cascade is fun little mountain for a day of fun on the snow and you won't be bored before lunch of even dinner. I would go back to Cascade Mountain again.
