This hotel serves the basic need of having a place to sleep within walking distance of the venue. There are very few amenities, and if it's full on Friday, you won't have a hot shower on Saturday morning. Bring your own food and beverages, and some lawn chairs to sit outside. Upsides are the staff is some of the nicest... More

During our 3 day stay at the Grand Geneva Resort over President's Day Weekend, we decided to leave the resort for a day and make the short 20 minute drive to Alpine Valley Ski Resort.... We had never been, but a friend once told me, of the nearby southeastern Wisconsin ski resorts, AV is the best....and i would agree with... More

Needs updating. Very old and dingy looking. Staff was courteous and friendly. Outside grounds were neat and clean. Buildings are horrible and several should be torn down. Eye sores for sure!

By the end of the lesson, they were both skiing well enough that they were both going on the black diamond ski slopes. This is a good place to ski and the grilled burgers on the patio grill were fantastic.... More

It's just 35 min from Racine or about an hour from Milwaukee so very convenient for a day trip if you love skiing. Compared to Cascade or Devils head, it is smaller and the runs are shorter, but a couple of runs are steeper and one of them has a drop that you can actually jump if you are in... More

We were looking for a romantic getaway on a weekend and thought this might be a place to try. Boy were we wrong! Our stay started by a long line at check-in, which is when we noticed that the hotel was packed, mostly with kids (High School and College.) We got to our room and were shocked by what we... More

Depending on where in the Chicago area one lives, Alpine Valley is probably a 1 hour to 1.5 hour drive - a little bit farther than Wilmot. In my opinion, worth the extra 30 min drive as they have a much better lift system than Wilmot. Alpine Valley has 3 high-speed, detachable chair lifts whereas to my knowledge Wilmot doesn't... More

I've been coming to Alpine for years. It's the best choice for a day-trip from Chicago. There are several runs and lifts. If you're from the west you won't be impressed with midwest skiing, but like I said it's the best in the area. Make sure to arrive early. The resort makes their own snow so if it's a sunny... More

One of the best place to take a group a friends to ski in the Midwest, caters to all ages and abilities and friendly to adaptive skiiers. I've visited on and off for three years, and I'm going back again. http://www.alpinevalleyresort.com/directions.php
