[R131R, Devil’s Head], Wisconsin’s largest ski resort with slopeside lodging, plans to open the day after Thanksgiving, and you have until Nov. 30 to purchase a discounted season pass. Some passes will go up by $100 after November. 


An adult unlimited season pass, good anytime the area is open, is currently $399. A Junior (6-12) pass is $340 and a senior (60+) unlimited pass is currently $175. An After School Pass (K-12), available for students and faculty, is $249. A Family Pass, up to six family members, is now $1,200. All will be rising in price Dec. 1. 


"The Head" plans on opening Friday, Nov. 25.  Half-price lift tickets and $60 hotel rooms will be available throughout the opening weekend. Lift tickets (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.) will be $25 and night lift tickets (6 – 10 p.m.) will be $16.    


A new Doppelmayr quad-chairlift was added last season. It replaced an older, slower double chairlift and proved to be a big help on busy weekends and holidays in getting skiers and riders up the 500-foot ski hill, according to longtime GM Joe Vittengl.


“If we have bottlenecks during our busy times it’s always getting people up the hill from the lodge area, which can get crowded on weekends and holidays.” Vittengl said. “The new quad chairlift, with some of the same features as a high-speed lift, helped solve the problem. Our uphill capacity definitely improved.”


Devil’s Head is a full-service resort with slopeside lodging, fine dining and one of the finest collections of blue runs in the Heartland. You won't find many bumps or any glades here, but the 28 runs are long, impeccably groomed and boast a nice pitch and roll that's perfect for carving long turns. There are four terrain parks, ten chairlifts and six surface tows.
