|| || Wonderful little ski resort very close to my home. Not a huge place by any standards but quite large by local standards. Says Dexter.|
This is a 4-5 hour drive from the n/w side of Chicago . . . and *definately* worth it. Some buddies and I go up for a few days every winter and I have to say, this is the best you're going to find without doubling your driving time or hopping on an airplane. Says Andy.
