“Alpine Slide”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

My daughter and I did the alpine slide and it was a lot of fun. The views of the Mississippi River are stunning, and the slides themselves are a blast. I didn't like the ski lift back to the top (only because I am afraid of heights) but the views were amazing! The value was pretty good too. I think it was around $15.00 for both my daughter and me for each one ride and ski lift back up. The drive up to Chestnut Mountian is beautiful as well! If you are looking for a fun daytime summer activity- this is it!

“Could be great, if.....”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

the people there were friendly. Not one nice person in the ski rental place or operating the lifts; in fact they were downright rude. (Especially the lift people)

However, the skiing is some of the best in the area. Although it is only a hill; the turns and height make it feel like a mountain. great views to the Mississippi too.

Can also ski under the floodlights which I always think is nice.

However, I think I will go elsewhere next time I'm out in the area and looking to ski. (Wisconsin?)

very old, run down and dirty. We went to Chestnut Mountain to ride the luge. Glad we weren't staying there!

“Just stopped for a quick visit”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

It's been 20 years since either of us have been here. Boy, has this place changed! The restaurant/bar area is really nice with wonderfully scenic views. Didn't get to see the rooms but were pleased to see that they've added lots of new runs and upgraded equipment for skiers of all abilities.
