I love that Little Switzerland is back open again after a few years. The new owners seem to have done some things really right. The terrain parks look like a lot of fun for the legion of young snowboarders out there. The beginners area is nice and wide with two T-ropes for the tots.
The restaurant serves delicious food and the drinks are excellent. The view of the hill while you're dining is very cool. Unfortunately, I'm a downhill skier and this is still just a 200 foot hill in Wisconsin. sigh. It's fun to take the grandkids here and mess around and teach them some stuff but it's really not worth it outside of that. Don't get me wrong! I love Little Switz and am glad it's back but it's for beginning skiers and daring snowboarders. Runs are just too short and limited for an intermediate to advanced downhill skier, esp. if you've fallen in love with Colorado or even been up to the UP or Lutsen. If that's the case, have some haystack onion rings, a great burger and watch the kids fly around on the hill.
