Ski Wisconsin, USA

Wisconsin may not be a popular and well known ski destination for those outside the U.S., but the state has some of the best skiing in the Midwest of America.  With approximately 40 ski resorts and areas, it may be worth checking out if you are in the area or you want to try something different from the crowded western resorts.   Many of the resorts are within reach of Chicago.   We don’t have room to tell you about all of them on this page, but have included information on a couple.
