I went to Cascade at the end of the 2005 season. I had just been to Alpine Valley, and Cascade was certainly a better ski hill than Alpine. I've just recently been to Devil's Head and it's almost a toss up between the two. The majority of the blacks were closed at DH when I went, so I can't really properly compare the two. Enjoy your day on the slopes! The worst day on the worst slope is better than being in the office.
