We have been coming to Cascade for the last 15 years. The upgrades are amazing!!!! The staff is friendly, and prices are fantastic! It's perfect for all levels of skiers in the Midwest!

The facilities are great. Plenty of food and drink conveniently located. Lifts that are comfortable, and appear well maintained, giving you a very safe feeling. All staff were super friendly. I love the location and grateful for the opportunity to ski within driving distance. We got a lot of mismatched information before and during our visit, which wasted quite a... More

I went skiing here with my 16 year-old daughter. She's a beginner skier, and I'm intermediate (no black diamonds for me, but a good variety of black diamond runs for skilled skiers.) This is a great little hill if the conditions are right. Wasn't the best conditions when I went. We went during Christmas break, so it was super busy.... More

We were there during the week between Christmas and New Year's. The slopes were pretty crowded, yet not too crowded. Nice slopes for first time and learning skiers. The Blue Square slope was pretty steep and icy for a blue square. There were a couple good terrain parks for snowboarders. Lifts were great, staff was friendly, lodge was warm, food... More

It was a little confusing. We are first time skiers and had no idea what to do or where to go. We stopped to buy passes and rentals and Calista was checking us in. We had to ask several times what she was saying and what to do because she was so quiet and unable to hear and clearly didn't... More

We came for skiing here over Dec 24/25th. The conditions were great on the 24th but it started raining on he 25th. We still managed to get a good amount if skiing in. EVERY single staff member we interacted with were super friendly. The rental staff and the ladies at the ticket window were very willing to help us. The... More

We had an enjoyable day skiing at Cascade. The mountain was only partially open, but the runs that were open were well groomed. Cascade is the best mountain for skiing in the Wisconsin Dells area. The runs are short compared to larger resorts in Colorado, Utah and New Mexico but still a lot of fun. The main negative was the... More

Reasonable prices for tubing down hillside. Warming house available inside near hill. Automatically pulls you up hill no walking up the hill. May purchase food and drinks or simply bring your own. Outdoor fire pit also available to warm your fingers and toes. Great place for adults and children.

I have been skiing here for years and it only gets better. During the week you can get plenty of mileage using the high speed quad. Weekends, avoid it and you will still have a great time. The ski school and especially their children's programs are some of the best in the Midwest, I would recommend anyone wanting to learn... More

From 6 to 70 years old - we all enjoyed skiing at Cascade. Kids ski free! (unless you rent equipment for them) We had problems with half an hour to 45 minute long lines in the afternoon. If you are a morning person, you'll have it made. The lines are far shorter before 10:30 am. The food in the Chalet... More
