Overview

Perched on a long ridge overlooking busy I-90/I-94, Cascade is considered the top day trip area in the Midwest. Chicago is three hours away, Milwaukee less than two, and Madison just a scant 30 minutes. Weekend crowds can be big, but the ski area is equipped to handle them. With 12 lifts including 2 high-speed, detachable quads, they can move a lot of skiers uphill quickly. Cascade offers 45 trails, four terrain parks and 15 snow tubing lanes. The 9 million dollar expansion phase 1 of 3 was just completed for the 2016/2017 ski season. For 2017/2018 we have added another new trail, opened a new patio, added to our snowmaking/grooming fleet and much more.

Accommodation locations range from two to 25 miles away, from luxurious condominiums and resorts to economy motels. There are 1,500 beds in nearby Portage and Wisconsin Dells.
