Just attended an optimist meeting in the ski shale that offered a large kitchen and bathrooms. It has a very large fire place with wood to burn. Plenty of tables and chairs available to use for your event. Outside is a covered picnic area and lots of walking trails. The winter Sylvan Tubing Hill opens for winter fun.

We love this place. It is exciting for both kids and adults. Families are able to link their tubes together and go down the hills, which is great for kids who might be scared to go on their own. The cozy lodge has snacks and offers a place to get warm.

I have gone here for the last several years. When I first started coming, it only had three runs. It has expanded since then, but the original runs are the best ones. The newer ones are curved, which isn't always the best. I know I had a few cousins and few other people who would slide over the snow barriers... More

I went her with my Grandkids. The ripples are the ups and downs. You come down this hill individually or as a group. What a riot. The more you have together coming down the higher the snow flies and the faster you go. The bumps are not extreme and provide added bounce to the ride. We had a beautiful day... More

We got there right when they opened for evening skiing so we were able to get several runs in before the lines got too long. It was a lot of fun. There are 6 runs with two tow ropes. The staff was very friendly. I lost my glove on one of the runs, and the employees has retrieved it for... More

This place was great! The walk from the chalet to the rope pull is a bit far, if you were planning on just watching your kids. So parents may as well get a tube and go also!

We booked the hill for a private party and everyone had a blast! I am not a fan of outdoor winter activities but flying down a snow-covered hill sure is a thrill! The staff was very friendly & accommodating plus the attendants at the top of the hill were great with the kids. Would definitely go back again!

The day we went was a school holiday, so it was very busy. The lines were long, but did seem to move smoothly. All the attendants seemed to know what they were doing. The check out person was friendly. I love living down south, but you forget how much more personal everyone is in Wisconsin. our group ranged from ages... More
