Weekends: Devil's Head, Wisc.

Leave behind the bright lights of Chicago for a weekend and head to the haven that is Devil's Head.

Located on the glacier hewn Baraboo Bluffs that tower over Lake Wisconsin near Merrimac, Devil’s Head Resort has been a haven for Midwest skiers since 1970. The secluded resort draws skiers from all over the region, but it’s a haven that’s particularly luring for Chicago’s skiers, simply because Devil’s Head is everything Chicago isn’t: pristine, serene and relaxing. From the Loop to the slopes is about three hours, a trek thousands navigate every winter.

Signs of the Times

Under pressure from insurers—and inspired by Disney—ski areas introduced colorful symbols to convey a trail’s difficulty. More than 40 years later, airports get in line.

Imagination is not the hallmark of most government agencies, so let’s give a cheer for the folks at the Transportation Security Administration. After successfully testing the idea at the Salt Lake City and Denver airports—the nation’s busiest travel hubs for skiers—the federal agency is using symbols similar to ski-trail signs to speed airline passengers through security lines. A green circle indicates the line for infrequent travelers—beginners—unfamiliar with protocol, such as not carrying bottled water through security.
