Great place to learn how to ski/snowboard on your own. Also, great to re-sharpen your skills before you go on a real ski trip. Other than that not much more to be had. I don't do any fancy jumping when snowboarding so I can say...More

Use for getting ready for western ski trips. Always have to get used to tow rope, but facility only opens when snow9both natural and man-made) is adequate. Also, excellent food at pub on site.

It's not Aspen, but for a little local snow hub the kids will love this. Some adults will as well. They have various activities for all ages and skill groups. It really is a hidden little snow gem tucked away in the suburbs!

There is not much to add. Illinois is not know for its mountains but if you want a small quaint place to learn and spend a partial day, it's great. My grandson took a lesson from Scott who helped him master the basics. The joy...More

Only rope tows here but a great starter place for kids to learn to ski and/or snowboard. They have a nice warming area, restaurant, and rentals available including helmets.

Only tow rope lifts here; they get really tiring after a few runs. There is VERY poor control of the skiiers here. Sure, there's rules but they aren't enforced at all. I got kicked in the back of the head by someone being reckless and...More

Parents are not allowed to enter the area. They had no one at the tow rope to assist any small child. The mentality is buy a lesson or buy a ticket if you want to help your child. My daughter came back crying with one...More
