You can also call Avalanche Ski Club at 224-223-7542 (SKIC). For up to the minute ski area conditions see the links to our ski areas on the trip schedule page . Remember local areas make lots of snow! They can't be open and in business if they don't have enough snow to ski on so they make many feet of snow throughout the season. When snow melts from your yard, they can still be skiing on machine groomed, man-made snow.
