  • Alpine Hills Park
    Alpine Hills Snow Park brings resort-like skiing, snowboarding, and tubing to a local community park, creating a family-friendly winter wonderland that sticks around all season. Snow machines sprinkle flakes on the ground, and a snowcat ensures a smooth surface every night once the lights go off. In the morning, staff send guests?both kids and adults?flying down the snow lanes on tubes, skis, snowboards, and snow skates. Specially built jumps, rails, and creative elements allow advanced sportsmen and sportswomen to practice tricks on the way down.

  • Chestnut Mountain Resort - Leisure Offers
    It shouldn't come as a surprise that Chestnut Mountain seems made for skiing?technically it is. The minds behind this resort transformed 220 rolling acres of snow into 19 trails, which crisscross a combined 475-foot vertical drop. Because the routes range from novice to Black Diamond, skiers of all skill levels can participate. Another thing that makes the resort accessible to everyone: The Village Ski Center, which equips visitors with all the gear they need to conquer the mountain and all the Three's Company trivia they need to pass by its ice trolls. Here, 50 guides and instructors train students in skiing and snowboarding. During this training they often make use of the resort's Farside Terrain Park, where more than 25 rails let boarders practice tricks. The resort even encompasses a few things that have nothing to do with snow, including three onsite restaurants and a handful of summer activities, namely mini golf and scenic cruises of the Mississippi River.

  • Sundown Mountain
    Towering cedar trees mark the edge of the slopes at Sundown Mountain, separating the wilderness from 21 scenic trails accessible by four lifts. Skiers and snowboarders also have access to two terrain parks, both of which are constantly coated with fresh powder thanks to a technologically advanced snowmaking system. First-timers can enjoy a few runs on the beginner hill after an introductory lesson. If you prefer to heed the code-orange Sasquatch alert and stay indoors, two lodges atop the mountain peak promise cozy digs and picturesque views of the countryside.

  • Raging Buffalo
    Raging Buffalo's adrenaline junkies have turned their athletic addiction into a successful enterprise by offering snowboarding and wakeboarding lessons to beginners and experienced riders. In the summer, their instructors take to the wake for lessons that start at the wakeboard school?open since 2001?before taking students on 15-minute riding sessions. When winter comes, the instructors dry-dock their boards in local bear caves and show students how to navigate the drifts with snowboard lessons at their ski park, which opened in 1992. Additionally, Raging Buffalo plays host to a variety of events, from rail jams to USASA competitions.

  • Norge Ski Club
    The yawning flatlands of the greater Chicagoland area might seem like a strange place to find the United States's oldest continuously open ski club, but that's exactly where Norge Ski Club makes its home. Opened in 1905 by a crowd of powder-loving Norwegians, the club helps skiers catch some sweet air thanks to an artificial hill that towers above the treetops. Today, it hosts a jumping tournament every winter, turning the event into a spectator sport with brats, popcorn, and alcoholic beverages.
