Cascade mountain is a great place to go snowboarding most of the winter. The cheaper prices and convince to Chicago make it a great weekend getaway. There are only two problems though. 1. Most if not all of the major hotels are in Madison. (...More

The new lift (B-Dub) opens up a new side of the mountain with 3 new long blue runs. Those three runs are fun for intermediate and beginners. They are relatively long for Wisconsin standards. That area is not too busy because you need to skip...More
