Best Ski Destination

Living in Wisconsin means living with snow, and one way to enjoy that is to play in it. Home of the Blue Hills Beast, Christie Mountain (W13755 County Hwy. O, Bruce) has tubing, over 11 hills, a black diamond with jumps, a ski school, and a first-place finish in this year’s poll. Trollhagen Ski Area (2232 100th Ave., Dresser) has 25 runs, three chairs, six rope tows, and a second-place finish this year. Granite Peak (227200 Snowbird Ave., Wausau) sits on 200 acres of terrain criss-crossed by 60 trails, and also takes home the third place slot.  –Justine Childs
