Devil’s Head, located in the beautiful Baraboo Bluffs region of central Wisconsin, is a big resort by Midwest standards – in fact, it’s the third largest in the Midwest. The resort’s strengths are long blue cruising runs that are impeccably groomed.

Step out of your lodge room at 8:30 a.m. or in the evening after 6 p.m., and you’re guaranteed to find miles of impeccably groomed, corduroy-like runs. What you won’t find here is much knee-knocking steep, but kids love the several terrain parks scattered around the resort. Skiers give it high marks in the areas of service, lodging, dining and après-ski activity; all the things that combine to make for a great family ski vacation.

With all the buildings connected by covered walkways, it’s easy to get around. Mom and dad can enjoy a leisurely dinner in the upscale Cornucopia Room while the kids go safely off to eat pizza and play games in another part of the resort.
