We stayed at White Cap Mountain Lodge for 3 nights Feb 1, 2, 3 2009. The family package that my brothers family took, included for a family of 4 >3 nights lodging, lift tickets for 3 days, breakfast and discounted rental. The couple package included >3 nights lodging, lift tickets, ski rental, ski lesson, 3 mornings breakfast, and 2 nights dinner for the two of us. It was about the cost of what you would expect to pay just for a room. The breakfast was a hot breakfast like eggs, bacon, juice, pancakes, french toast etc. The dinner you had a small menu to choose from.
The lodge is an older structure but well maintained. They seem to be renovation the rooms one by one. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The lodge has an indoor pool and hot tub area, opens the same time the lifts close for your use in the evenings. It was well maintained. And always had someone surpervising the entrance door. There is a large glass enclosed room with tables to sit at that you can see the pool area from.
These rental units are truely ski in ski out rooms, with kitchen or kithenetts.
The best part for us is that there was no crowd, infact one day it was only the 6 of us on the lifts, and I was very surprised they opened all the lifts. One of them I don't think we used all day. And the wine hut was open, even though we were the only ones there. They did everything to see we had what we needed. On Sunday there was probably 50 people on the whole mountain.
It was so sad to see such a great family activity area be so empty. I hope more people can enjoy this place, so it stays open. You cannot beat the price.
The snow was great for Wisconsin snow, and they groomed every day, even when there was not many using the runs. They were prepared.
All in all it is a great get away that is VERY AFFORDABLE for a family and can introduce the kids to the wonderful world of skiing and snowboarding.
