  • Our Family has made this trip multiple times, Devil's head is by far the best bargain when looking for skiing in the northern Midwest region. We booked it on our way up there and had no issues. We stayed in the lodge and the room was plenty big enough for 5 people. Slopes we're great and not busy at all mid week. We chose the midweek ski and stay package. Would definitely recommend and will be returning in the future.
  • I am livid with this place! This is our first and last time here. They just put my family and kids in danger. We checked-in right around midnight. It's late at night, everything is dark and we're trying to find our lodge. The roads are not well marked and we wondered off into the ski return area, which is when we realized we needed to turn around. A snow groomer saw us and decided to drive straight at us! We were stopped in our tracks, honked loud and hard, and he kept coming! My husband veered off to avoid collision. When I called to complain at the front desk, there's no manager on duty but the kid at the front desk seems to think it's acceptable that the groomer came at us and put my family at risk. His explanation is that we were off the road and the driver did not know if we were drunk. But we were stopped in our tracks, we honked to alert him we saw the snow groomer coming straight at us, and he made no effort to acknowledge or stop. What would have happened if we had not veered off to avoid collision? Would he have continued? Is this standard protocol? This is completely unacceptable.
  • I've been skiing here since I was two. I love the runs they have; my favorite is Cyclops. It's also a really good place for people to learn to ski. I just took my cousins up here and there was good beginner-level runs and snow. My family doesn't usually stay overnight since we live nearby but when we do I aways enjoy the hotel.
  • Went skiing for the first time at Devil's Head Resort. The staff were very helpful in picking out our gear before we hit the slopes. Had some training for an hour and a half where the instructor taught us quite well about how to walk and put the breaks on ice before we tried sliding down a slope. The beginner slopes were not very hard but the fall did hurt quite a bit as I felt there wasn't enough snow to cushion the landing. Nevertheless would definitely go there again!!
  • I used my own skis my first day and rented a snowboard my second and in both cases I had an easy experience getting the lift tickets and renting the board, the only real thing I would mention is the rented gear isnt the best quality, but that is to be expected. The hills here are good for any amount of experience and everyone should be able to find something for themselves here. If you get cold, they have great rest areas where you can sit and get some food, and I would highly recommend the hot chocolate as eveeyone seems to enjoy it. I have no real complaints and I am definitely planning to come back.
