Full review

I've been to Devilshead about 4 times now, we drive up from St. Louis. It is pretty nice place and pretty large for a midwest resort. First off you can't beat the midweek package, it's very cheap and the place is empty during the week. The terrain is pretty good, nice long runs and alot of natural terrain like wall rides and big rollers with a few tree runs. My only real complaint with this place is the temperature. Make sure you watch the weather when you go, when the temperature gets above 32 degrees the snow gets SLOWWWWWWW. Some people complain about the lifts but after a while I got used to them, they are old but at least they are not slow like Cascade, those are the slowest lifts I've ever ridden in my 15 years of snowboarding.
