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.
