Wisconsin

Wisconsin skiing is some of the the best in the Midwest. Never thought about skiing in Wisconsin before? You’re missing out! Wisconsin is ranked in the top 12 in the country for downhill skiing and snowboarding. Whether you’re a downhill skier, hardcore snowboarder, or cross-country enthusiast, you might be surprised to find that you don’t have to look any further than Wisconsin for all the best slopes, terrains and trails. Wisconsin downhill skiing is in a class by itself, and here are just a few reasons why:

  • The scenery is incredible: 46% of the state is entirely forest, and the geography includes valleys, rivers, bluffs and elevations to over 1,950 feet, making this state a nature-lover’s paradise.
  • Wisconsin has over 30 different ski hills and resorts.
  • Many of Wisconsin’s best ski resorts are just a short distance from Milwaukee and  Chicago, and offer features that compete with top-rated hotels in other popular skiing destinations.
  • Wisconsin’s season starts as early as mid-November and usually runs through March, weather permitting.

No matter how much natural snowfall the state gets (usually an average of 50+ inches) the hills will start making snow once the temp dips below freezing, and keep the slopes skiiable all season.

Wisconsin also appeals to cross country skiers, with more than 250 trails across the state, making Wisconsin a coveted destination for the sport. From backwoods trailblazing in solitude to state and national park-sponsored popular events, like candlelit skiing and ski races, Wisconsin offers something for every cross-country adventurer.
