Christie Mountain Resort, Wisconsin Hot

christieWith just 14 skiable acres, Christie Mountain in Northwest Wisconsin is one of the smallest of the state’s roughly 30 ski resorts. Despite its diminutive status, Christie serves as the quintessential local ski stop – perfect for families seeking an affordable outing, novices seeking to hone their skill and those seeking to squeeze in a few runs without the hassle of long distance travel.

Christie is known for ‘Whitetail’, its signature ski run, but another notable attraction is four days of night-skiing each week. Trails are open until 9 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday and until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings. Those looking for a little fun in the snow can also access Christie’s tubing hill, which offers hours on Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Overcrowding is never a problem at Christie due to its smaller status, thus recreational and developing skiers benefit from wide-open terrain. Furthermore, there is plenty of room in Christie’s four terrain parks for those looking to perfect tricks.

With prices ranging from $15-$22 on weekdays and $26-$33 on the weekends, anyone, including families can afford to ski at Christie. Cheap rentals are also available for those who don’t own their own equipment.
