It seems that we all love lists here at Ski Rex. We love to see what one outlet has to say about something or somewhere in skiing and then watch as the community of fans debates, or berates, the list. This one doesn't need that, though. This isn't a "The Top..." or "The Best...". It's just a list of places for the wonderful folks of Chicago to hit when looking for a ski trip. Let's take a look.

1.) Alpine Valley Resort 2.) Cascade Mountain 3.) Devil's Head Resort & Convention Center
4.) The Mountain Top at Grand Geneva 5.) Villa Olivia 6.) Wilmot Mountain

To be 100% honest, I am not that familiar with these mountains. Most of them are in Wisconsin and I have not had the privelege of skiing in Wisconsin. However, for the locals that know, are these places worth heading out to from Chicago? Let me, and the rest of the Ski Rex fan community know what you think.

For more information about the list and a description of the mountains that are on it, you can follow the link below.

Hit the hills: 6 skiing and snowboarding spots near Chicago

Rather than hiding inside during the snowy winter weather, you can make the most of the season by hitting the slopes for skiing and snowboarding. Whether you're just looking for a day trip or want to spend the weekend exercising by day and warming up with some drinks by night, these six spots will help you embrace the cold.


Please check out the Ski Rex Media sponsors and partners. I love these folks and I think you would, too.
