Went on Saturday for a couple hours. Snow wasnt great icy in most areas in the blacks. Terrain Parks were lacking features especially the main one. 4 kickers on the main one and a couple of rails. Rails on the main one are for highly advanced park rats. Side parks are good with smaller jumps and easier/ wider rails. Gets really crowed by 10.
Was here all weekend long. Dasher open only on Saturday.
Extremely cold temperatures today. Great skiing anyway until sun came down and became icy and not really friendly. Great weekend overall and will definitely come back soon
Went again today. All western lifts closed. Probably because of the -30 windchill. Lift lines were non existent! Way too cold though. A lot of ice. Really needs a good snow storm. Vertical and steepness is way better than anything els near Chicago. Trees are hazardous due to lack of snow
The view is amazing! Although many runs are open, some still are not (of course that due to the lack of snow). They are basically all currently groomers and rollers (moguls are not there). It's a great place and is definitely worth the drive.
P.S. Trees are the place for no groom!
Considering the lack of natural snow, the slopes were in decent shape for Friday night skiing. There is more ice than usual but some runs have great, powdery snow. No Tyro terrain park yet and fewer huge jumps, but fun boxes/small jump in place of biggest jump. Mission Ridge has good rollers. Western runs/lift supposedly opening this weekend. You have to ask yourself if it's worth $85.
$16 Thursday nights. from two (ish) weeks ago when i was there to today was a whole new world. lots of runs, the snow wasnt icey for the most part, TONS of features. definitely my favorite place to go!
