We’ll be staying in a cabin at the Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center, then hitting the slopes at Cascade Mountain on Saturday. With a choice of skiing or snowboarding, and lessons available for both, we’re looking forward to a great time on the slopes.  Skiing and snowboarding are fun, but risky sports.

Here are some tips to make your experience safer: Prepare before you even get to the slopes Most ski area websites have lots of information about skiing and riding safety. Cascade’s website safety page and FAQ's page would be a good start for you to gain knowledge before you even get here. You can learn the Skiers Responsibility Code, articles of Wisconsin state law regarding skiing, helmet usage facts and lots more.  vUniversity of Wisconsin-Extension. The center sits on a prime location on the Wisconsin River, two miles north of the Wisconsin Dells, offering an excellent “river classroom” to study both the natural and cultural history of Wisconsin. The center rests on 310 total acres of forested land, including a 210-acre island called “Blackhawk Island.” The facility consists of 14 buildings including a fully equipped nature center and a raptor enclosure housing educational birds of prey.
