Winter is finally coming this week. As much as a foot of snow is predicted.
Locals, it’s time to wax those skis and pile the kids into the station wagon. Ski destinations beckon.
Cascade Mountain, W10441 Cascade Mountain Rd., Portage
As of this writing, 33 of the 48 trails are open. Not a skier? Check out the tubing runs.
Granite Peak Ski Resort, 227200 Snowbird Ave., Wausau
There are 25 trails and five lifts on 75 acres. Have an après-ski soirée with live music in the historic chalet.
Tyrol Basin, 3487 Bohn Rd., Mount Horeb
Open for the season, some of the trails are still closed but there is plenty of slope to carve down, as well as tube runs, live music, races, and more.
