Wi, Mi, Il...??
I'm looking for suggestions, conditions, etc.....
Here is the deal, my daughter and I are looking to get out for a couple of days......we are from the Milwaukee area - typically ride at Sunburst in Kewauskum because it is close, but we move around a bit and go to some of the other "close" hills (Olympia, Cascade and Alpine) when we can.
Sometime in the next couple of weeks we are going to go somewhere mid-week and are looking for suggestions. Last year we went to Powderhorn and had a blast.....have not heard great things about the conditions/snow up there right now (could just be bad info) and am hesitant to make the 5+ hour ride for average snow. So, I'm also thinking about Chestnut (never been but heard good things) and Granite Peak (I've been there before) because they are both in the 2-3 hour drive time range.
Any insights into Chestnut? Has anyone been up to the U.P. recently? Thoughts?
For what it is worth, she is 10 and is a fairly cautious skier...I board but don't get too crazy, so the terrain park is not a huge concern.... some small features and I am good.
