i was visiting friends in chicago this past holiday season and we drove 3 hrs to devils head to check it out...

first thing that hits me was the higher then normal lift tickets. 50 bucks for an all day ticket seems a bit
then my friends who were renting got some stone aged step in snowboards and worned out boots...very very crappy rental boards for 28 bucks.
chair lifts were very old and slow.
some of the beginner trails are jus straight out flat.

tho the place was not too crowded and i seem to see a majority of snowboarders then skiiers.
they have some decent long runs compare to other resorts around the area.

but mainly i hate it coz of the lift and the imo overpriced lift tickets.
