I've looked up the Illinois "ski resorts." The club would have to travel a LOT.
My snowboard is staying home in Oregon.
Search Wisconsin ski resorts. It's no Colorado (it's no Poconos, for that matter) but there are some decent hills within a five hour drive. But if you're in Oregon you're probably spoiled with options as it is.
Yeah...nothing in Wisconsin is going to compare to black diamonds in the Cascades or Rockies.
lol Poconos. (Hint: if they're round on top, they're not mountains!)

. It's reached via a gondola, 2 chairlifts, a t-bar lift and a short hike over a saddle. There's a sign at the top that says "Ski at your own risk. 6 miles down to nearest lift."
In all honesty, it's probably a good thing that there isn't a decent mountain anywhere nearby. I'd have a really hard time not taking off every weekend like I do now!
Mt. Hood's gotten 5+ feet of snow since like Saturday. It was great on Monday.
