Meadow Sugar Creek Course at Alpine Valley Resort Ratings & Reviews
29 days ago
Great little place to go. It's not the Rockies, but we moved to central Illinois and this place is great for the area. There are a ton of lifts, so lines aren't too long. It did get crowded at times, but that's expected. Plenty of easier runs which I liked because I'm not the greatest on skis. Not very difficult overall if you're an experienced skier/boarder, even the "black diamonds" but it's enough of a challenge to be fun. Many options for lift ticket times/ prices . Rentals are easy to get. We stayed at the resort, it's not a 5 star hotel but it has a hot tub, friendly staff, and affordable prices.

This is a great resort for those of us who are limited to Midwestern skiing for a normal weekend getaway. The trails and lifts are well maintained, the runs are not too busy, and all staff members I have dealt with are very friendly. The downstairs cafe has great food and extremely reasonable prices for people who are looking for something to tide them over during the grooming shutdown in the evenings. I highly recommend this ski school for anyone looking to learn. Instructors are friendly and attentive. I cannot comment on the lodging or rental service as I have not used either, but for those looking purely for a place to ski this is a fantastic option.

We spent the day skiing at Alpine Valley. We purchased a learn to ski package that offered a two hour lesson, equipment rental, and all day lift tickets. It was a great deal. The instructor was great, easy to understand, gave good feedback, and very nice. The lesson was not too long, he used his time well to ensure we were safe and comfortable skiing and on the lifts. We had lunch at the bar upstairs. Alpine Valley's staff could use some education on food allergies, they did not seem to take my questions seriously about ingredients. The server offered to ask the kitchen, but either never did or never reported back to us. I suspect our server was having an off day, but another server checked in on us and got us on our way.
