Pros: The best in ski runs and longer for ski resort in Wisconsin
Cons: Ancient chair lifts, probably older than the resort itself 50 years?

Great ski runs, long, nice humps for ski jumps, and snowboard jumps.
Great terrain for both skiers and snowboarders.
Great view from the cafeteria or lounges while taking a break for eating.
Great view from the bar lounge while taking some drinks.
Very close rental location which is just below the cafeteria, so by the time you get out of the door from rental and locker rooms, you are by the chair lifts and resting place for your gears.
It has nice two Magic Carpets for all the beginners, which is located near the parking lot or just above it, so if you are a beginner and don't know how to stop with either your skis or snowboard, you will end up by the parking lot and probably rolling down under those vehicles...
Rental and lift tickets signs are missing when you get to the resort, there was no direction or arrows around the parking lot where you can get the lift tickets from. We had to go around the resort by car trying to find it and finally ask the lodge front desk where you can get them. Then, they told us that we can either get those lift tickets from them (front desk) or go by the rental place under the cafeteria and get those tickets by the counters. In short, we got lost just trying to get lift tickets.
All the chair lifts are ANCIENT! The double chair lift which was the main one that they use in the middle of the resort is VERY OLD, and TOO SMALL for the two people. I can't believe this is what they use to get to the very top. They should have a quad chair lift for this location. I have some pictures for the resort with this review. Check them out.
