Location, location, location. If you're skiing at Devil's Head, you have to stay at the Resort, you can ski right to the doors. The rooms are well below Holiday Inn standards, it's a confusing labyrinth, and the accommodations all have that "you're a captive here" feel, like they could update it, but they why should they? Cornucopia, the fancy-looking and...

Would recommend staying at Devils Head if you come to ski, otherwise not so much. The rooms are "meh" - similar to a college dorm room (including midnight hallway seranades😳). Food is ok, but if you want to go anywhere else (Dells or Madison) is quite a trip! The two lane highways wind and turns all over and the route...

Outdated, disgusting, rusty, moldy, and overall gross. Good not terrible. Staff are not nice either. The skiing was fine. Lifts and trails pretty nice. Not too crowded. I just think it needs a good overhaul of the resort itself.

Skiing is fine, but DEVIL'S HEAD! PLEASE! Refurbish, reinvest, remodel. Re-Clean!! look at Cascade Mountain, Granite Peak, Powderhorn to name a few. This place will fall off the map, which is sad. It could hold such potential. As a native Wisconsinite, I remember when this place was clean, up-to-date and fun to ski. It still is fun to ski, but...

I just went here yesterday with a group of 3 couples for a weekend ski trip. My boyfriend and I arrived earlier than the rest of the group, just as the ski lifts were opening for the day. I recommend planning your visit the same way, as the snow was in its best condition at this time and there were...

So let's start with the good. The "mountains" here are actually some of the better/longer ones in the area (vs cascade and Christmas mountain). I definitely recommend to SKI here and that only. The resort is a worthless dump. The coils of the mattress sound like they're going to explode on your every move. The employees here might have a...

We went for NYE and bought "5 day package" that was offered. Rooms were quite outdated, floors disgusting, toilet broken and whole hotel is smelling at tobacco, pot and mold. Whole thing was building in the 70's and apparently never updated. In number of rooms people made parties with lot's of shouting, singing, drinking and weed smoking and we had...

We spent the last couple Christmas holidays (weather permitting) at this resort. Great people, very nice and service oriented. The slopes are good maintained and are diverse from bunny hill to black diamonds ... In all honestly The rooms do need an update. But we are there to ski and not to watch tv in your room :)

Disgusting. We went for NYE weekend and bought the "package" that was offered. Our first room was located at the Inn. Walking into the building was like walking back into the late 70's. Once we got to the floor- the smell of pot was overpowering. We called security within 10 min of checking in. We left to ski for the...

Sick slopes. Steezy set up. Best place around. People are super friendly and always smiling! Instructors are AMAZING best lesson ever! Highly recommend taking a lesson! Slopes have a huge range of difficulty!
