Yeah it all depends what your used to. For me devils head is great. I havent been there in two years but they had a decent park and some good runs. Like said before its alot less crowded. Its harder to find though. Make sure you have good directions.

I've been to both alot, i would pick devils head over cascade any day. DH has a great park. Tyrol is a lot of fun to, there park is sick, but yea it's small... If you guy's ride around WI alot go to skiingwisconsin.com they are selling lift ticket's to 15 spot's for only $80, that is a steal if you ask me... I'm going riding this sunday with some friends not sure where maybe "sun burst or alpine", if anyone want to go let me know. We are always down to meet new people. Oh yea we got hit other night over 12 inc of snow.....

well if your heading up to WI, just check out Chesnut mt!!!! Its huge, and personally, i love it there! and from Chicago its like a 6 hr drive, so its not that bad. A smaller place is Alpine, but they have some really good snow right now!
Good Luck

I am going to to an overnight trip this weekend on the 19th and 20th. I will probably spend saturday afternoon and night at one and then Sunday at the other. I have never been to either Devil's Head or Cascade and I have a couple questions.

Which place is bigger?
Which has better freeriding?
Which has the better terrain parks?
Is there any other tips or advice about one or the other? It sounds like Cascade tends to be more crowded.

I normally ride at Wilmot so any comparisons to there would be helpful.
Thanks guys

Wilmot is comperable to alpine I would say. Right now cascade has 6 terrain features and some random jumps people have made on their own around the park. You will see what im talking about if you go there. However in regards to park right now it is very weak and lame. I do not ride park though but I know enough to say cascade stinks right now for park. Watch their website for updates in regards too adding to their park, i presume this will be the week they finish grooming all their runs and get some more park stuff open.

I was at cascade today, I have a season pass there, I spent most of my time last year boarding at devils head. Devils head has lifts from 1940, but their lift lines were never very long. Today was kinda busy at cascade I presume because everyone has been itching to get out and ride and supposedly in Madison a ski shop was giving away free passes for this weekend.

As for freeriding I would say devils head and cascade are comperable. Cascade has a run or two with some nice steeps going to it, little bit steeper than devils head. However the steeper runs at cascade are little bit shorter than devils head. Cascade does have a high speed lift which is an advantage over devils head, but this tends to be the longest lift line.

Last time I was at wilmot was about a year ago when they were not fully open so only thing I could compare was size and devils head and cascade are bigger.
