We had a great time at Coffee Mill! We definitely picked a good day to ski it between two waves of bitter cold that the Midwest had this winter. The skiing was really good with fun terrain off both lifts. O Chute was nice and steep along with Fall Line. They also had some of the best views for any ski areas in this region (not as good as Mt. La Crosse, though) with the Mississippi River and a few rock formations to look at on the sides of the bluff. The lodge is also pretty neat because it is a big octagon and is mostly open inside. The lift tickets reflected the value; not too expensive, not too cheap. We didn't understand why their only all natural snow trail, Kitty Walk, is just that: a flat cat track.
